    I just hope this won't end in disaster.
    HTC/S3/VIA... doesn't stir up good memories if you know what I mean.

    If it works out well, then we have a good chance of a HW that is supported in Linux...

    I think it is actually a bit hilarious that a MacBook is one of the few libreboot compatible ones. I mean, this is a bit like advertising old nvidia chips because somebody has reverse engineered the...

    Dear Troll

    Harald Welte had some considerable success enforcing the GPL. GPL has the same validity as any "commercial license".

    Nice one. Good to see an opinion also from a more commercial viewpoint.


    On the import ban:
    Well. Yes and no.
    a) Some vendors manage interestingly much when it comes to SW patent violations....

    Okay, I considered the firmware and microcode to be similar enough to be thrown in one pot. But maybe this is my view as user. :) For me also an embedded microcontroller / processing unit inside a...

    Just found this Coreboot blog post via openlunchbox project:

    Violating the (L)GPL is illegal. Harald Welte managed to kick some butts in the past. :)
    It is legally as valid as any other license so it should be obeyed. I mean, you get the code for free and...

    Sounds reasonable.

    John / Mr. Bridgman, could you maybe also elaborate a bit on Firmware that is used in general on recent AMD APUs? (If that is legally possible.)

    What / how many little blobs...

    Yep. After listening to the talk in early January I wrote to Biostar about the issue but haven't even received and answer yet. I guess it
    a) takes a long time for mainboard manufacturers to deal...

    Not entirely true. Asus had called it Z-flash? Or q-flash. Others have similar things just with a different name. Gigabyte definitely has this also, for quite some time. And I think other, too....

    I feel your pain on T-Mobile. And the magenta T is the main company here. *eyeroll*
    Though I heard that every mobile or ISP is kind of hated in the states. Wasn't it Verizon that changed cookies of...

    Well. Basically that is it.
    But first you have to be sure you whole mainboard is supported, not just CPU, North/Southbridge. That means also SuperIO and the likes. Flashrom must be able to write to...

    Ah, nice to see. I hope also Kabinis and Co will be supported soon. I also hope that we will have a fully FOSS boot code one day. But it is a good "start" already. (if you can still speak of start...

    Google isn't really about freedom. It's about getting hold of your data and making money from it. So: No.



    While it is nice to hear a view that could be from Sage, what are you talking about?...

    I started collecting old hardware since TPM / TCPA emerged the first time. Basically it is all vendor lock down, forcing the user into "markets" and "eco-systems" of their own. It is controlling the...

    Yep, and half of that is even a glaring mirror screen. I guess any Atom or Kabini is definitely capable of at least 16:10 1920 x 1200 (I know Kabini is). And that would help a lot of laptops. I...

    Ah, Bridgman was to the rescue again. :)

    Thanks for the explanations and the linked PDF.

    The link / explanation was nice. So at least I have a clue now what this is dealing with. A welcome addition.

    Poisenous stuff that. :)



    Omg, yes, there was something. Please no.


    That may be true but I guess there are better ways to solve this than hauling UEFI on those poor devices. UEFI is way...

    I hope I quoted the essence ;)

    Yes, sure. But:
    1. I DO a hell of a lot of research before I buy.
    2. I never get all the info I want and need. To be on the safe side.
    3. I actually write to...
