    I tried Netsurf and some other minimal browsers recently, and none could correctly render the pretty basic web page that I needed it to render. At this stage, I wouldn't recommend them for most...

    Yeah I just tried it on a desktop with 4.0 kernel and couldn't get it to work at all... not sure what the Pi people are doing that is different, perhaps someone has built an older driver.

    Raspberry Pi people seem to like Realtek RTL8188cus, $3 on Ebay. I bought one for that reason but haven't got around to trying it yet.

    Code is not the problem. The Nix authors had code a decade ago. Chrome OS had code 5 years ago. Either of those would have been better base update mechanisms than what the distributions were using,...

    The schools that are buying Chromebooks have obviously determined that Chrome OS is a suitable replacement for the Windows laptops that they were previously buying. If they had not made that...

    ARM is a different thing. The issue with 32-bit x86 is the cost of continuing to develop and maintain something when no developers run it - as Linus once said, all of the x86 kernel developers are...
