  • Windows8 "Secure Boot" UEFI 2.3.1 ban Linux and all other Opensource-OS:

    http://www.heise.de/newsticker/meldu...1-1334957.html

    "Aus der Linux-Community wurde schon angemerkt, dass es f?r freie Betriebssysteme schwierig sein k?nnte, signierte Bootloader zu erzeugen."

    quick translate: "linux experts in the community point out that no one will get an key to signing a free boot loader for this system"

    HELL Microsoft is truely the most evil anti FREE and Anti Open company..

    Right in this moment i wish all microsoft employees and company owner would die a painful death.

    damn.. i hate this company.

With shaders it is predicted to hit Playstation3 kind of graphics in a year or two on phones (!!!!) and with reduced latency and improved battery life, it might as well be the nail in the coffin for consumer x86 use entirely. Also taking into account that Window 8 and the latest Office will run on ARM!


    Not to mention the 5% speed increase from not running the BIOS next to the OS, which a lot of people (including the OS kernel itself) doesn't even know's happening.

    Boy exciting times! ^^, Year of Linux on the desktop? Year of Linux in the desktop replacers! Wait... that has already happened with Crapdroid!
    Yup, gonna be fun times

    Android has started the momentum already, so we shall soon enjoy fast cheap systems

    There should be mobos that are "Designed for Coreboot" from the ground up, then make this crap all a non-issue

We also do not need 1TB harddisks for a full install.
    Two problems:
    1. Those old computer will eventualy break;
    2. Future old computers will be Windows 8, or newer, ones.

    I for one do buy the latest and almost greatest hardware, just so that I can keep my computer working for 6+ years, so yeah; I would like new hardware to run Coreboot.

    The funny thing is that not only will there be a demand for Coreboot computers, but also we can get rid of the ACPI shit that happened to break battery life on Linux portables.

    It's also not that hard to get all laptops working; almost all have the same chipsets as PC, for which you can swap physical Coreboot BIOSes and then just hack a little on the laptops to get the quirks out. Imagine kernel developpers taking Linux to newer hights by making a real fucking propper OS implementation.

    And it's not as if Samsung wouldn't support this with their ARM CPU's, because once there is a mentality for going all the way down (no turtles), the Samsung kernel support might as well cgo there. (Note that Samsung is upstream supporting Linux with their ARM CPU's now and also sponsoring Enlightenment). PS: Samsung makes laptops too!

    Optimist, you were saying?

    you can fix that with blind re-flashing the bios.

    i know one he do crash his card and he fix it in blind reflash the bios.
    I have two cards installed now. Seems like winflash doesn't like x64, which wasn't a problem before... =S I'll just boot a dos prompt.
