    Time. Porting takes time, so somebody must be willing to do it, and continue doing it for maintanance. Otherwise it won't happen. You are basically saying that cross-platform is a non-issue since any...

    Fantastic news, but Belkin has to provide a fully open stack of course. The hardware on this router is simply stunning, it provides a very powerful router to expand OpenWrt into usage scenarios that...

    This article is about exactly that, AMD provided documentation, David provided driver. Not sure what you want to prove. For SB, let's see, maybe somebody is up for the challenge.

    Actually, I belive that notion comes from Microsoft propaganda. In reality I believe everybody working with copy-left experience that is the other way around, GPL is if any anti-communistic. Remember...

    Briefly looking at the github page of lfort, I assume LLVM has no useful fortran support at all, so why did you list it? Not sure about rust, it was just revealed about two years ago. Actually, it...
