    I'm just saying you should focus on NVIDIA. Both FOSS drivers are nice as are proprietary. FOSS in long term, in short term the closed source drivers solve the problems people are having. Intel GPUs...

    I have integrated radeon on some AM2 AMD64 board and have tried ubuntus. E.g. 12.04 hanged before X desktop appeared. The installer showed up however. Also 11.x releases didn't work.

    I still see little point in celebrating. Intel GPUs are too slow for most OpenGL 4.x games. A real gamer would buy NVIDIA. There are not much options as AMD also totally fails with their open source...

    There are cheaper and faster devices than RPi. For example if you happen to know beforehand what you want, there are really fast HTPC dongles like chromecast and allwinner boards from China, both...

    That's a bit unfair to say so. Nobody cares about synthetic benchmarks. Look at the real world performance like dcraw and nging. BBB is over twice as fast at serving web pages and also twice as fast...

    Well OpenWRT doesn't run systemd so it's not that compatible with modern Linux user space development.

    I don't even trust my friends. Have a squid proxy at home and blocked ports 443 and 22 for guests. The web usage is also logged at http header level to prevent abuse.

    IMHO it's the responsibility of OpenWRT developers to adapt systemd to these smaller devices. It's modular so you could make it as small as the one they use. Besides OpenWRT already uses tons of...

    Well the weird thing is RPi is non-profit and other ARM boards are for-profit. OTOH if you pay $5 more, you get multiple times more performance. Obviously the RPi guys have wasted money on useless...

    Actually PNG is great for photographs. It can store larger color depth than JPG, support color profiles and even alpha channel. The problem is the file size, but if you need a lossless format for...

    But systemd is modular? You could statically link with uclibc and use gcc's -Os.
  12. Couldn't it run systemd, too?

    Couldn't it run systemd, too?

    Well the problem is that it's $10 more than RPI and Pi users can't afford it. Especially the programming hungry kids in 3rd world countries. That's why Pi is still needed.

    RPI was designed so that kids learn to set up a cross-compiler for arm11 :)
  15. Even with better power supply the sound output on...

    Even with better power supply the sound output on RPI is ugly raw PWM. 44,1 kHz and about 12 bits. Not really hi-fi.
  16. Is there any estimate on when RPi is supported by...

    Is there any estimate on when RPi is supported by mainline? They still recommend using 3rd party fork of the kernel..

    How about running some task X on both hardware? X could be 1) cpu intensive command line app 2) launching a big desktop app 3) some normal long term operation like indexing all movies in XBMC...

    It's a toy. Back when RPI was published dual or quad-core Cortex-A9 1.2 GHz ARM was pretty normal for dev boards. RPI is 50% slower clock per clock. That means 8 times slower.

    It will take some time but if you look at academic conferenses about programming languages and the hype in general, most effort goes into dynamic languages and especially JS. No doubt JS is now a bit...

    That's a filthy lie. Modern desktop themes, widgets, layout engines etc are 99% similar to web page components. The widget toolkits even form a DOM like HTML. HTML5 with JavaScript and modern CSS is...
