this is on lobste.rs today but i don’t have an account, so i will comment here: devever.net/~hl/imx8
1. it’s possible that we cannot deblob the _HDMI_ of imx8m but: that’s not proven: maybe the auth is flawed, does it even work?
2. we can (and we do) use MIPI DSI->eDP, blob free
3. if you wanna do a presentation, you can use a usb display adapter
4. why so fatalistic, where’s the hacker spirit in 2019
i do have an account now.
@mntmn I think it's because some folk had set unrealistic expectations for a full FOSS laptop. In any case these reactions are typical; if you remember for example the Firefox addon incident, people swore and said they're changing to Chrome etc. Do they use Firefox now? Who cares? It's just the usual reactive people.
@mntmn if you would like one I could invite you.
