    Support of STMicroelectronics STM32H750? That is great, I didn't know that some ST chips were available in mainline linux.

    Ok, I'm sure you understand what I mean nevertheless.

    Yes, that's why I added "or whatever it was": I recall the community helping nvidia in some way, adding support for EGLStreams somewhere, but I don't remember exactly where, maybe it was Gnome, KDE and others

    Nvidia wrote that EGLStreams support in Xwayland themself, they can waste as much brainpower as they want. Especially in the context of them maybe supporting the proper solution aka GBM after all. Just don't buy a GPU from them if you have any self respect.

    There is no consumer product with Neoverse core and current Windows + ARM experience is an abomination. ARM age indeed

    2018 will be looked back upon in the history of Aarch as the year in which the AGE of ARM moved from very low power mobile and embedded use cases to finally competing in desktop and laptop use cases with the introduction of the ARM Cortex A76 and the Server variant the N1 and X1. From that base with ARMs clean sheet redesign of big.LITTLE into what is known as DymamicIQ along with out of order superscalar and wide width ordering, Qualcomm, Ampere, Nvidia, Apple, Fujitsu, Amazon and Google have taken ARM to heights not seen ever in the consumer space and even to the fastest Supercomputer in the world.

    Now, I predict that 5.13 will be looked back on as another big leap for ARM along with GCC 11 support for all the new ARM hardware that's been out for the last couple of years including Fujitsu and the new vector SIMDs SVE and SVE2.

    All this and the absolute raft of ARM based rollouts of Chromebooks, Windows devices and Apple completing it's full transition to ARM based Mac's including their Mac Tower will make 2021 a very pivotal and exciting year for ARM.
