    It's true. In Uruguay the laptops distributed by Plan Ceibal only
    allow to boot signed builds without root access. The biggest part of
    the software can be used and modified with freedom but not inside
    those laptops.

What I was told in Uruguay when I brought this up is that users
can get them unlocked if they ask.

Skype: No way! That's nonfree (freedom-denying) software.
