nchip Re:Why is redhat worth so much? (199 comments)

A example from Ethiopia:


Notice that Ethiopian orthodox church descents directly from the original Christian church in Judea, it was not brought into the country by west-european missionaries in later ages.

Linux Kernel 2.4 Or 2.6 In Embedded System?

nchip linux2.4 is NOT proven on Atom (178 comments)

or better to stick with the old and proven 2.4?

Linux 2.4 might be "proven" on your old Xscale system, but I doubt anyone else has even _tried_ to use Linux 2.4 on something as new as Atom. Linux 2.4 will also lack support for any of the peripherals of your Atom com module.

Bad Signs For Blu-ray

nchip Re:Noone likes DRM (1276 comments)

1) macrovision
2) partially true, but dvd's sold nicely even before deccs came out in large and region-free dvd players appeared.

It's not the DRM that's affecting blu-ray sales. The suggested future replacement for blu-ray, internet distribution is even more DRM-affected.

It's the price of blu-ray content that is keeping BR away from massess.
