    Some people have problems accepting embedded distros as "Linux distributions" because that would affect their perception about the relative success of Linux distributions.

    Someone who isn't poor...

    Well, AMD could release the toolchain and source code to the firmware blobs. Also, as some coreboot users have learned, the driver needs a proprietary video BIOS to work.
  3. They are not really welcome, but they are not...

    They are not really welcome, but they are not forbidden either. Numerous examples from the present and the past exist, most prominently b43 vs. brcm. Or IDE vs. libata PATA drivers. Or e100 vs....

    While ChromeOS can survive losing 10% of fools, I think that losing the 10% smart users will hurt much more.

    And that is what happens: The average dumb user does not know or care about ext4. And...

    From Murphy's Law:
    Build a system that even a fool can use, and only a fool will use it.

    If they don't revert this decision soon, the ChromeOS user demographic is going see a marked shift towards...

    I think they said that VA-API was worse.

    If I had to guess, these are business and not technical reasons. OpenMAX for decode and encode is already enough, and OpenMAX is by far the most used API thanks to Android.
    VA-API is used on...

    I think the solution to the problem is to standardize on firmware which is open source as well. That way it can be easily fixed if something breaks due to undefined behavior, if necessary by the...

    About the price, I am mildly optimistic that it will not be much above the bare tablet mobos that you can buy individually. After all, the JZ4780 was designed for use in low-cost tablets.

    Compared...

    BPTC patches were not only published for nouveau, but also for r600g:

    Last I checked, AMD no longer lists Kabini as HSA compatible[1]. So I would avoid buying Kabini for HSA. The Kabini/Temash successors Beema/Mullins however seem to support HSA in some form.

  13. As far as I understand, the software needs not...

    As far as I understand, the software needs not use HSA explicitly. OpenCL is enough, and that is already in use by lots of applications.

    About the "lower level components", the JPEG decoder...

    @erendorn
    I have seen that, I even replied to his post. Whether the gcc.c compile benchmark qualifies as a real-world comparison is debatable (I tend to say no). But a problem is that it is not a...

    No, it is not from anywhere. It has been written from scratch, as was stated by NVidia and reported by phoronix.

    @przemoli
    Nobody? The reason and origin of this patch is even given in the article:
    So it is most plausible that the Tegra 4 Chromebooks (Acer CB5 hit the news last month) is what prompted NVidia...

    That is very optimistic. 10% is roughly the difference which you can see in select synthetic benchmarks, outside pathological cases.

    It was already said in this thread. On devices where all native...

    Ugh, so much misinformation here.

    x32 is basically x86_64 just with 32 bit pointers. It requires an x86_64 kernel.

    x32 will reduce memory usage, and especially memory bandwidth usage by...
