As usual, device manufacturers are evil pricks who don't like hackers messing around with their stuff
Evil pricks ? So they make a CPU and GPU for one specific use, develop drivers for that use, you use the CPU/GPU on unsupported configuration and it's the manufacturer who is "evil *****", because they didn't invest time and money into combination they don't sell the product for ?
It's like complaining that your diesel car doesn't work with petrol...
Don't really see the point. going from MeeGo to Android, maybe. But not vice-versa!
Equally Linux based? Hell no. Every single thing that goes into MeeGo is contributed back upstream into the Linux kernel, whereas Android is primarily Java VM based, where all improvements are limited to Android. The only thing Linux about Android is the kernel.
Not a huge expert in this area, but seeing as theres a 99% open-sourced build for the HTC Desire, could many of the drivers be easily ported over? Or is it too different?
Nice to see free software continuing its tendency to produce half-finished half-arsery which doesn't actually work.
I don't mean to be unnecessarily harsh, but for christ's sake. Usually I tend to try and finish a project to the point where it's possible for someone to, ooh, I don't know, actually use it? And I prefer to do that before I start leaping around shouting about how clever I am.
lol Rhodes. you wouldn't hear much about anything from the FOSS crowd then. hehe
They need the attention to get more developers interested in it. You know. with FOSS you can only solve a problem by adding more developers to the mix. There is just no other way.
