    With Intel Broxton, phone OS would have been easier. Now, Adreno GPUs used with freedreno are our only hope.

          Intel uses Mesa on Android-x86, so I guess yes.

            Many people are already using a free phone OS. Called illegally downloaded windows 10.

              At this point Gnash is a waste of time... it barely ever worked to begin with and when it did was was slow.

                Modern era phones are more powerful than the hardware the Hurd was originally designed for. Maybe that's a possibility?

                    This is a forum, not reddit, and the problem of allowing votes (particularly down votes) that mean anything at all have already been well explored and found to be an utterly awful idea.

                    In any case, this list might actually mean something if GNU would put their money where their mouth is, but I'm pretty sure Michael is the only one that cares about their list at this point. If GNU cared they'd be actually working on these projects as opposed to waiting for someone else to come along and do them.
