@Baggypants

I am to please, though dreadfully sorry about your drink... :/

@PINE64

@the I mean I've ran non intel linux, well a very long time...

As for their DRM, consider how much focus will be on breaking it, much like iOS jailbreak, it's not going to be long, regardless of what they do... ;)

I'm all for different random tech don't get me wrong, I just don't think "welcome to the show" is the best message, instead something like "welcome back to the fold" would be more constructive. Consider what their dev army could and probably will do for the arch ( I have ran arch on a ppc macbook, I'm not going to say it was fun to get working, but it can work, slackware too).

@the

I can put anything on there I want (macos is a bsd varient anyways so it's nix). Linus used macbook airs for years for kernel dev... O_o

@loweel

Lolz, I mean whatever, wanna go on believing marketing that's your deal. Additional features don't mean you have some new arch.

Great it calls itself advanced risc, so what... I can use the same garbage kernel from forever ago, and still task that chip. Sure it does this or that different, but mistaking it for something actually different from any reduced instruction cpu is kinda sad honestly...

I've been working on bare metal kernels for decades, so if you think it's that different, more power to you, but your still wrong. The fact I can run a kernel and os made for ppc from forever ago on a pinebook kinda says, not that different.

Sure MIPS is slightly different, all in your list have variances, but again we are talking different flavors of apples here, not apples to oranges...

@PINE64

@PINE64 To this I say comparing the two is more like comparing Gala Apples to say Fuji Apples, they are both Apples but different Apples...

@loweel

Meh... Look, one tool chain, code runs on both... O_o maybe not as efficient on one vs the other, but it will function...

I think ones idea of whats the same and whats different varies a but from person to person, personally one risc chip is the same as another, some perform better than others... Can my software go where it needs to, yes is the answer, I could load a linux built with ppc, it'll run fine on most desktop arms... (I've done it)

@PINE64

@PINE64 O_O If I don't have to switch toolchains to build my nix of choice on either or, they aren't "that" different...

That said, my point is they are not new to the non-intel game for a PC and have more experience with it than anyone else, even if they haven't been doing it, for a while...

@PINE64 I mean... You actually believe powerpc and ARM are that different?! Hahahaha
