Linux 3.7 Kernel To Support Multiple ARM Platforms

Kurlon Re:Clue wanted (82 comments)

A big chunk of achieving a multi-soc supporting linux kernel has been converting arm drivers to use Device Tree for initialization. You build a generic kernel, and uboot either loads a DT or supplies it directly to tell the kernel what hardware layout is present.

Intel Details Power Management Advancements in Haswell

Kurlon Re:Intel already realized where their market is (113 comments)

Intel doesn't make Windows Only chips, they make cpus and it just happens that for some they gave the specs to Microsoft for support and are letting others figure it out on their own. If there is interest in Linux running on them, it'll happen when the community dives in and makes it work, just like they have with nearly every other architecture out there. Intel isn't actively blocking other OSs from the platform. Just because Intel isn't devoting manpower to Linux support for a given chip you don't have to form a lynch mob.

Cars Emit More Black Carbon Than Previously Thought

Kurlon Re:Here it comes. (292 comments)

Almost all gas engines use smog pumps these days, including Honda. The pump isn't there to dilute the gases, it's to supply fresh oxygen to the mix to allow remaining unburnt gas to finish combusting so the catalytic converter can deal with it.

FCC Chair Calls On ISPs To Adopt New Security Measures

Kurlon Customers don't CARE (110 comments)

Unless you do something along with the notification to make a customer actually ACT to clean up their system, they won't. As soon as you start taking customers offline when you confirm their compromised, they'll jump ISPs. It's a no win situation.

Microsoft Taking Aggressive Steps Against Linux On ARM

Kurlon Re:MS Taking Aggressive Steps Against MALWARE On A (675 comments)

So... what stops WidgetCo from selling a cheaper version of the hardware sans Windows, unlocked? (Cheaper as no Windows license to pay for.)

Absolutely NOTHING.

You want Windows, you play in the sandbox just like with IOS. You don't want windows? Well good news, there is a giant freaking ecosystem of options out there, already well established. The chinese alone will guarantee copies of hardware that are wide open will always be available.

Creating the World's Cheapest Tablet

Kurlon Re:366 MHz? (192 comments)

I'd just like to point out that I had a 386sx-33, and I could in fact play video on it.

No, I couldn't stream netflix but many demos had video clips, as well as some early CD games.

Actually, (In the US anyways) you can be nailed for DUI even on private property. Even if it's not a car but a lawn tractor...

Alternatives to the CBDTPA?

Kurlon Re:Other alternatives (576 comments)

Actually, they already have stuff like this in place. There is a third party company I can't recall the name of that does this for Sony music.
