One Laptop Per child, yes just what the world needs, more fat lazy pimple faced geeks who can't get laid.
Kids needs rocks, sunshine and to go play with their friends, Not be sitting around on laptops trying to figure out bash.
Mostly these underprivliged tots needs food and clean drinking water.
BTW I am totally OK with not everyone having a computer. No skin off my balls, if you live in a country where a job doesn't pay enough to buy one then you likely live in a country that does not have the infastructure to support one.
You are saying this, because your mommy always gave you a computer.
There are lots of children in the world that don't have money to afford one.
A computer on their hands can change their future and made them more informed people, that can even contribute to the open source development.
If people live in a country with social problems, this don't means that they can't be using a computer.
This kind of response, makes me think that this "Thatguy" is a VIA employee.
They should be of this kind of dumbness and that is the reason that make them do on of the worst video cards on the world.
The guy behind openvia and now -chrome is called Jon Nettleton. This guy has been hanging around openchrome for a long while, and likes to bash the author of -unichrome (me) a lot, ignoring the vast amount of dependency he has on stuff that same person did before. Nettleton has not really burned the code/idea contribution charts in the 4-5 years that he has been hanging around.
There is little actual olpc involvement here, nettleton just seems to be the only one of the openchrome guys who talked himself into OLPC, and is now aiming for that. Not sure whether he does this in his spare time or whether he is contracting for them. From the amount of code, i'd say spare time only. No self-respecting contractor, in the open source field, would deliver this and get any money paid.
Now, the openchromers are forkers, they forked away from unichrome. Now one of them forked away again, first created a repo he threw away (openvia? -- and which self-respecting open source developer throws away public repos?). And now he has done -chrome. Great.
The content of the thing is nothing new: it is a recent VIA codedrop, with some rather minor cleanups. Guess how unichrome started, almost 8 years ago? What will VIA do next, if it does anything: they will release a new codedrop. So what will nettleton do then?
