    It was that I was referring to( the fact that what you call "chinese knockoffs", being first in Mainline than raspberry pi.. ).
    but it wasn't their vendor achievement, it was done by community. so ask this community why it chooses to help chinese knockoffs instead of vendor with true linux support?

      Well,
      Probably because raspi was blobbing everything from the beginning?...And no one like blobs..
      I do remember when raspberry pi was launched...during years not even a pdf with SoC documentation was released..

      That alone, left a big negative mark in the community, not to speak about the blobs all around the place since bootloader to kernel initialization, done by the graphics cards, but everything closed..

      So its obvious why the community choose another products to hack..
      Open bootloaders, Mainline Kernels, mesa graphics..

      Raspberry PI can still start behaving, because the world starts to go opensource..
      But Closing the bootloader in flash like they do in Raspberry PI4( instead of supporting a opensource one ), again a blob, its not helping much neither..

      With other products, we control all process, maybe this is why people go with another products..
