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

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

    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.

    RK3588 should have Valhall. If it ever gets released.

    So what stopped collabora from supporting ARM GPU work before?

    Don't worry, Samsung is going to abandon these crappy Arm's GPUs starting with Exynos 2200 shipping with AMD GPU.

    No offence taken at all, and as you can see from the commit logs it's not my work anyway.

    Cool. And sorry, I didn't really mean to undervalue your or anyone's work. That was a poor choice of words. What I meant is that it was probably small amount of work compared to what there would be to sell if someone was willing to buy it. Surely this is very cool and important work that you are doing.

Doing a little bit of work to write about and get word around that "btw, we do this sort of thing and we are good at it. Would you be interested in buying some of that?" They even ask interested people (projects) to contact at the end.

    It could be of course that someone has already paid for this.
