    Weird. With everyone loving Intel's opensource drivers and strong linux support, you would think it would be to support only Atom and drop ARM.

    in order for that to happen you need to either stop coming here or take your own advice.

    firstly;
    dont feed the trolls, asdx(the troll) you can leave as no1 is keeping you here and thanks to your little childish outbreak no1 cares what you think nor say

    secondly;
    LKML invader(s) still dont have stile, its better then the last one linked on phoronix but still...


    on a lighter note, this has stile
    http://git.xonotic.org/?p=xonotic/da...3a0e3b253081c8

    see, its obscure, looks technical, and is funny when you get it

    actually,

    this make a lot of sense


    and this coming from someone who as always used intel.


    Even here in SE it's all smartphones and tablets, the appearance of mini-pc's and stuff like raspberry pi and the odroid-x , ug802, etc...

    there's a huge shift coming in personal computing, I sense that the wintel days are going to end soon and when you can buy a mini-pc with 1g of ram and 1.6ghz processor that runs android 4.04 just fine for $60 it seems the future will wait for no one.


    so... by dropping the support for everything and totally focusing on the arm platform, linux could be for arm what windows is for the x86 platform

    think about it.


    linux x86, 20 years of fail

    linux arm, a golden new dawn of win.


    I have decided that my next system will be based on cortex A15 and this is from someone who had 20 intel processors in the past.


    the future is now people, the future is arm


    edit: btw I like these posts so you all so stfu and who gives a shit about your 1 cent that your page clicking generates

    now that has more stile, love the sarcasm

    Pallidus for the new LKML jester


    on a technical note;
    x86 still beats arm in performance per watt
    performance per watt is highly dependent on semiconductor printing and what kind of performance you are testing
    for example sparc is good in low latency massively parallel tasks, while power is better at number crunching but has delay and can do fewer tasks at a time
    arm from what i can tell is made for simple devices, x86 for general computing(didnt check arm instruction set)

    who cares anyway, a pentium 2 is waaaay faster then me and opengl 4x will make possible a full shift of arithmetic operations to a gpu so pentium 2 will be able to run new games and else(if programed properly that is)
    so we need massively parallel, direct to memory PCI buses more then faster/better cpu's

    i think in a similar way but right now loongson is better than ARM but in 2014 ARM will have 64bit to and then its a complete different story.

    Default The irony of this trolling...

    1. Troll posts to LKML

    2. Michael reports it, just for the entertainment of the readers

    3. People complain about Michael, not the troll

    4. People start offending each other in comments

    ???

    PROFIT!

    I can tell that wasn't you. Maybe for the first two, but for this you're just a poser.

    Default Bizarre!

    Strange that a site such as this one would post entirely nonsense articles. Post it on the forums only, or else not at all, I suggest.
