    Yep. The Arduino Tre will also be a sane solution, when it comes out.

    The Galileo development board also says explicitly that it cannot be powered via USB, as it draws too much power. I am really...

    And when I say slow, I mean 250Hz I/O speed type slow.

    Sadly it is not a hybrid; there is no microcontoller on the Galileo. The Arduino sketches are emulated in user-space software, using slow external pheriperals and thus unusable for anything real-time.

    Using systemd journal will already provide much more info than syslog+sysvinit when the app uses syslog interface (or even just stdout/stderr). Those interfaces have no way of providing fine-grained...

    Clang/LLVM is used in probably all new iOS and OSX projects. The Linux kernel uses many GCC extensions, it was never designed to be portable.

    Plenty of investments in GCC still, but its trend is...

    The packages are source packages and not binary, sure. Using an AUR helper, as basically everyone does, the main distinction is that it takes a bit longer to install than binary packages*. The key of...

    Re: distros with "PPA"

    Arch Linux has the AUR, Arch User Repository, which is extremely active. https://aur.archlinux.org/

    Many (most?) times in competition between open source projects in system, infrastructure and tools area, the winner takes (nearly) all. There is always some competition at the fridge, but usually the...

    It should* matter 0 what was there first, development costs are sunk. What matters is which one will give more value for the money now and in the foreseeable future (with the transition costs are...

    Supporting using multiple GTK+ library versions in one process would require more than just versioning of symbols. This is generally a hard problem, and doubly so when you have code which...

    Why do you think the code will be cleaner this time around? The Unity and Ubuntu teams seems to always be in a hurry, always willing to cut corners. Focusing almost entirely on "next week", "next...

    Unity is only available as non-official packages in Arch Linux, and only because some dedicated Arch users spend a lot of time providing all the Ubuntu-specific stuff. The Unity-for-Arch repository...

    Afraid not. GIMP is a 99% volunteer driven project, and, as mentioned, severely undermanned. People spend their time on what they think is fun, roadmaps (which usually sets up expectations one cannot...

    Because X.org has served, and continues to serve, the desktop usecases pretty OK, unlike the mobile/embedded usecases. For embedded there is also less need for full-fledged, general solutions (the...

    Agreed that Olimex Allwinner devices are, at least at the moment, much nicer.

    The EOMA68 form-factor is a bit interesting though. Having a clear COM/SBC split makes it easier to do a custom PCB...
