Perhaps ARM64 Desktops laptops and ultrabooks with SOHO mainboards where to put several slots of multiple CPU+GPU+RAM with a main SoC, is the future.
Late but at time RISC became the winner over CISC.
And from Pocket computers to supercomputers RISC ARM64 in arrays processors will beat Intel and AMD CISC processors.
But this day is not today, and from supercomputers, to servers and desktop laptop and ultrabooks computers CISC Intel and AMD CPUs are still better.
And Linux supports almost every device.
But I do not like NOT PUBLIC DRIVERS that a lot of ARM devices have.
GPL must do a new version - in my opinion - where hardware vendors MUST PUBLISH THEIR DRIVERS and HARDWARE PACKS for every device. I am not asking for FOSS DRIVERS, I want to download BLOBs too.
If we buy an ARM device, tablet or phone, or set top box, we must be able to install whatever Linux we like to, Android, Aliyun, Debian, Ubuntu, Arch Sabayon, Fedora Suse or any fork WITHOUT PUBLIC DRIVERS there are no freedom.
Devices with SECRET DRIVERS are as proprietary as any proprietary OS, as you do not have the freedom of changing anything even it is open source.
And of course, a standard method for installing ARM distros, from USBs or from other computers as you can do at CISC CPUs with Multisystem or unetbootin or even Yumi USB pendrives installing from ISOs with grub with Linux packages with GUIs for installing from PCs - the ROMs programs are usually MS WOS and OSX only, what a paradox for a Linux kernel OS -
I love Android, but i think there must be PUBLIC HARDWARE PACKS for every ARM device in order to be Linux GPL approved, to let the user install whatever Android fork, Aliyun, Debian, Ubuntu, Arch, Sabayon or others they want.
Here's an easier solution: don't click on the link and don't read them.
You may think that is easier, but I had already went out of my way (previously) to allow Michael to make money from my views (which AFAIK, i didn't do for almost any other site via adblock). Noscript is always running, so it was just a matter of blocking phoronix. - no big deal.
Plus, Michael would still make money from my views, even if i was to not click on the link - so what purpose would your 'easier method' serve? -> absolutely no purpose whatsoever.
anyway, it doesn't matter, since it is done.
if you want to line michael's pockets and support these types of stupid articles - go right ahead, but not viewing the article (from my perspective) is not enough, so until the 'troll mailing list articles' stop, Michael gets zero revenue from my views - simple as that.
Fuck you asshole, you are the cunt. Go kill yourself. Asshole.
Would you mind explaining why you ever come to this website? nobody appreciates your attitude, your chronic nearly daily complaining is obviously ignored by Michael, and you KNOW what you're about to read before you open the page yet you feel the need to enter it anyway. I think you are as much a troll and feeding trolls as you claim Michael to be.
My point was that Michael wouldn't get the revenue from that page in particular.
I do have a premium subscription, but the amount it costs is sufficiently low that I think it's hardly lining Michael's pockets: I can help support Phoronix for an entire year for less than the cost of a trip to the cinema. Given the number of articles I read and the amount of time I spend on here, I regard it as a bargain, even with the occasional article that I don't like.
