    Apparently you don't know how much of a clusterfuck ARM devices are due to the complete and total lack of standardization. They are not the same as standard X86 system.

    See this from yesterday: Android AOSP Leader Quits Over Binary GPU Drivers

    No OSS drivers, no sale.

      I dunno. Seems that there are quite a few ARM devices selling these days.

        Yes, it was a joke. I was poking fun that the first comment wasn't "yay, opensource code and the possibilities that it opens!". Instead it was "I want more! F-U-Nvidia! (Linus Flipoff)".

        It was a very american attitude, to be given more when before you had none (I am an american btw). How many other game system makers give you the OS code for god's sake? This is definitely a nice start!

          Shield uses NTFS (read-only) or FAT32. Nvidia is working on bringing full NTFS and exFAT functionality.

            No, it was not. If the article claims that the whole OS will be opened it is a valid question if that includes a formerly closed driver. There was no demand at all.

              Yes, and they are locked down black box devices with vendor specific mods to the base OS and require a completely custom build for each device.

                I was not complaining. I was just asking, what was actually released.

                P.S. Thanks God, I am not an American.

                    Yeah, I feel MSDOS was better than this crap. I stopped developing apps for it due to the numerours bugs in the base OS (mainly memory and graphics related). The "developers" behind it have open bugs for years in the bug database. This crap should die. As much as I hate Apple, their OS is much more polished.

                      Android is openSource...that alone is more valuable than all other crap os together.
