    People said we would never have functional, commercially used open source CPUs, but then projects like Leon appeared and proved them wrong. It is not impossible, just hard to be motivated when we do...

    Making chips is very expensive - it is possible that nobody will ever fabricate a physical implementation of this design. That is the real problem of open source hardware. If you could just download...

    LTS is not just about stable software versions. One of the problems with using Debian stable in a business environment is that Debian does not do hardware enablement for stable releases. Imagine that...

    System branding. People don't normally say "Linux" in that context you are taking about, instead they say "Ubuntu" or "Red Hat".

    Yes, it was kind of the same as it is now. There were many issues, but there were also people successfully using Nvidia and AMD drivers on Linux. Phoronix was even benchmarking - NVIDIA Linux Display...

    Rise of the tablet combined with lessened need for annual hardware upgrades. Business for every desktop and laptop manufacturer is declining. Also "want" is not the same as "willing to pay for"....

    Ubuntu was released in 2004. Do you remember what open source driver support for video drivers was like a decade ago? It is easy to say now that open source drivers are sufficient, when we have Intel...

    OP was right. People want Macs, not OS X. If Apple shipped a themed version of Windows, instead of OSX, people would still buy Macbooks.

    But will the quality of a limited time reverse-engineered effort be as good as an implementation written by a full-time developer who has engineering documentation of the GPU?

    And when, in 12/18...

    Indeed. systemd-204 was released May 9th 2013 and is the latest version in Debian unstable and Debian testing, so that would have been the version that got imported into Ubuntu for 14.04. Arch is on...

    Developers targeting Ubuntu, and who are using automated tests as part of their development process, will have their tests running in Ubuntu. If they also target other platforms with automated tests,...

    This is not really an issue. The reality is that developers who are targeting Ubuntu already need an Ubuntu build and test environment, certainly if they are doing professional development this will...
