    I was forced to become self-employed, as between modesetting, freeing ATI, free ARM GPUs, and the insanity of fd.o politics, i am pretty much blackballed everywhere. I get hired for my expertise, for great money, but i invariably end up fixing build systems and teaching "embedded" people how to use git, while i get to see less technically capable people have a thriving career based on what i have trailblazed. And then i get to work with their sometimes very shortsighted and clunky code, reminding me of what could have been.

    So no, as that is not how this game works.

      Well, nevertheless, I appreciate your work and contributions. Don't let cynicism get the best of you!

        Give or take, the oh-so-beautiful-future ARM world is purely proprietary now.
        With everything that comes along.
