The fully libre-friendly workstation gold standard that respects your freedom.

Vikings D16 systems come with absolutely no proprietary software, firmware blobs or backdoors, unlike most other computers. They provide medium to high performance and are secure and built to order.


Since the Summer of Snowden what we have feared had become true: almost all modern hardware platforms used for hosting contain potential backdoors or exploitable bugs.

Would you like to protect yourself or your business from espionage, corrupt governments and other malicious third parties? Have you heard of the secret workshops where some three letter agencies demonstrably intercept your hardware shipments and tamper with them, without your knowledge? Or have you heard that most hardware manufacturers intentionally place backdoors into their systems, so with most systems from the large manufacturers, you or your company is at risk of data theft or espionage?

The Vikings D16 workstation changes that.

We replace the existing BIOS with fully libre boot firmware (e.g. coreboot) that completely removes all backdoors and proprietary software on the mainboard. This gives you full control over your hardware.


The perfect choice for the privacy minded who need a modern, powerful workstation.
