    I do think we must look at the definition again:
    It says it is open if you can run a true DFSG debian on it.
    It doesn't say the hardware is not allowed to have no proprietary code. Because in that...

    If I only browse through the ethernet cards, I see a list of cards that require firmware blobs. Either loaded by bios or by the kernel. (At least all intel and broadcom 1Gb/s+ cards requires...

    I do miss full derivatives like nokia's maemo, but also open-embedded and all other ipkg and opkg based distributions.
    Sometimes I look at package descriptions from openwrt, and my hands just itch...

    I think that is exactly what he is saying.
    Distro's have been trying to solve a number of issues. In the dominant package managers all installed files are registered in the package managers.

    So that means that it's finally possible to have ahci support on macbooks?
    Because the mac uefi registered the ahci as a piix4 device and not an ahci.

    So it is intel's fault that the Lima driver is not yet finished!

    I surely hope it would not start any write actions. It should inhibit all access to the harddisk, and if possible put it in standby/off mode. Syncing data actuall means it might have to spin up...

    A security clearance.
    If you buy a motherboard running coreboot, and you get the source to that, it essentially means that the motherboard does not contain unknown SMI-based backdoors.
    This is...

    Well, reiser 3 was rock solid.
    We have moved a lot of servers from ext2 to reiser. But then 2.6 came and reiser was unstable. So everything moved to ext3, then ext4.

    I would love to see memory stress figures on the test.
    I bet btrfs would top the charts with memory usage.
    And then xfs+ext4 somewhere below.
    Don't get me wrong: as soon as btrfs is near stable, I...

    I was able to play netflix on my ARM chromebook for some time now (actually it always worked, but netflix has been available for less than a year now). That's the biggest reason I didn't know netflix...

    I can assure you that a HD4890 is better and faster with open source drivers than it ever was with the fglrx.
    The only reason that I put an R9 270 into my rig is that it seems that anything above...

    You cannot avoid samsuck. Unlike qualcomm, samfuck contributes a lot to open source. I bet all your qualcomm devices have samsung code running. Even when proprietary source code escapes samstuff, you...

    Everybody calls me crazy, but there is a big reason why I do not buy qualcomm based phones.
    Qualcomm has always been a very nasty about licenses and enforcing it. I think Qualcomm has a bigger...

    The best thing about firefox using gtk3 is that you can now export it as a broadway HTML5 application.
