    Phoronix: Fedora Discussion: "ARM Is A Dead End"

    From time-to-time unique/crazy/odd discussions get born on the Fedora development mailing list -- such as talking nasty about Ubuntu's Unity, trying to make Fedora a rolling-release distribution, etc. The latest discussion that's been very active has been about whether ARM hardware is a dead-end...

    MOAR DUCK TAPE!

    If people can build canoes out of it, you can make a solid laptop. You probably couldn't close it though.

    But how's that related? Tablets are really un-ergonomic, my wrists don't like it when poking one for more than half an hour. I don't really appreciate touch UIs either, due to their nature they are forced to insert lag (is this a single or double tap? Maybe a gesture?); my fingers aren't invisible; smudges, etc etc.

    (I do have a couple Android tablets, so speaking from experience)

    As far as I could find, that laptop uses Loongson 3A which doesn't have the vector unit (3C has it).

    the only difference is 28nm for ARM right now and 65nm for lonngson .-.

    and this is very good!
