    We are able to install proper and native GNU/Linux distros on most Android devices already. All you need is root rights and an unlock-able bootloader. That doesn't mean you'll be able to use all the...

    I was referring to this statement I read in etnaviv's repo; correct me if I'm wrong.

    I very much agree with the three comments above mine. This is slightly good news for prospect reverse engineers planning on a free driver, but nothing to be extremely joyful and grateful with...

    I actually tested this build yesterday, and I have to say it wasn't that exciting from the tip of the iceberg that GNOME is. There have not been many user-facing changes this time, other than that...

    What open source support? Just because they have a FOSS driver for their integrated GPU doesn't mean their platform is supportive of FOSS overall. AMD actually beats Intel in this regard. Not only...

    Is there any other way to write portable and fast kernels?

    Because the big vendors you are referring to are in bed with the NSA, and many of them profit with your personal data. Before they can use free software operating systems and firmware as a selling...

    Scientific theories are backed up inductively but they aren't proven like math theorems, and I can't make sure the axioms mathematics is built upon are actually true. Why even bother giving my...

    Reverse-engineering Nvidia's unacceptable blackboxes isn't a trivial task. Nouveau developers are doing an outstanding job out of no documentation and no support.
  11. I think this extension...

    I think this extension comes quite relevant and handy for what you are concerned about. I don't understand why Firefox notifications are related to this article though. Not even the full changes list...

    This is like all the hatred going on with OpenBSD forking OpenSSL instead of contributing upstream, or any other project that diverges from the traditional solution.

    Why did you people choose...

    A consistent user experience that fits most use cases with Gnome-ish software by default.

    So it is unfair for LLVM/Clang to be compared against a compiler with good multicore support but it isn't unfair when GCC lags behind in compilation time because of some techniques LLVM or its...

    I'm pro GPL but this post I can't believe. Having one free driver and possibly many proprietary ones for a given piece of hardware is way better than having no free driver at all. Moreover,...

    But they already do this. The firmware folder in the Linux code base is plagued with binary blobs, and some of them explicitly include license information that forbids modification, etc.

    [citation needed]


    not trolling. Sad but true that AMD has been somewhat friendlier with FLOSS than nVidia; however Raedon depends on nonfree firmware for 3D acceleration.

    The sad thing is that while AMD puts a little more effort on the free driver Radeon, a binary-only firmware is still needed to get 3D acceleration; whereas Nouveau can actually...
