While I understand your frustration, and agree with the general thrust
of your email, and disregarding the "10 years", the Samsung Chromebook
Plus (and many other devices of similar age) beg to differ.
There are devices from 2016 and 2017 shipping with coreboot and no CPU
level blobs in the firmware (the only CPU side blob would be the
kernel's GPU driver).
