  1. I don't know about Clang, but...

    I don't know about Clang, but https://build.opensuse.org/package/show/Kernel:HEAD/kernel-vanilla seems to be a daily kernel build. I can't comment as to how good it is though.

    That is extremely easy: sue them in the US, and block all imports of their stuff. They'll start cooperating so fast you won't know what's hit you.

    Actually, I don't blame Intel for this: I blame the OEMs for choosing to use it. And besides, I don't see it as much of an issue. Almost all users are never going to want to install a firmware other...
  4. The bootloader is separate to the kernel, so I...

    The bootloader is separate to the kernel, so I don't think there'd be a problem with a closed bootloader. The probelm would be with locked bootloaders that only allow approved kernels to run. GPL v3...

    Who wants their garbage anyway? I'll stick with stock Andorid any day.


    No it wouldn't, because it would still be licensed under the GPL2 as well as any later version. And the "or later" clause...

    A very nice idea, and one I wish they'd do, but the problem is that a lot of stuff is tied very heavily into Win32 (even to the extent of simply being a wrapper around the Win32 control, e.g. text...

    I'm thinking of something priced more along the lines of the Pi the Pi is OK because I can combine it with an ATmega328 (basically Arduino), but that does make things more complicated.

    Yeah, the...

    I'd be interested if you could name a few of them, please. I've got a Pi, but I'd like something with more GPIO.

    And where is the ECC, large amounts of RAM, and so on?
  10. I doubt it, because I don't see how the third...

    I doubt it, because I don't see how the third step is possible when it is licensed under the MIT license with a patent promise. Anyone can fork it and distribute their own version if they want to.
  11. Um, no way. It is still over its real performance...

    Um, no way. It is still over its real performance by probably at least 10 times, if not 500 times. That number (270 MB/s) would be about in line for an SSD, but is far too high for a mechanical HDD...

    No, don't read the GPL FAQ, read the GPL itself: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/old-licenses/gpl-2.0.html (since the kernel is version 2)



    In other words, in an commercial distribution the GPL...

    As far as I know, all 16 GB DIMMs are registered. Desktop CPUs, and probably even the Xeon variants (at least the LGA115x CPUs), don't support registered memory. So no, it probably wouldn't be...

    Normally RAM errors are quite obvious. The vast majority of my RAM is used by programs, not data, and therefore if there is a single-bit error it would most likely crash a program. And most RAM...

    Look, as I said earlier if it runs fine in Windows and has a totally different set of unrelated problem with the Catalyst driver, then it cannot be anything at all to do with defective hardware other...

    If it works fine on Windows, as is being said, it cannot be a hardware issue. It has to be drivers or similar.

    VirtualBox (and VMWare) use a special driver on the guest and hand the result to the host. No hardware involved.

    Using PCI Passthrough would require a dedicated graphics card, which isn't what...

    Well, you'll be looking at a 15" if you want that as a native resolution. In which case you're most likely looking at second-hand.
