4. why so fatalistic, where’s the hacker spirit in 2019
@mntmn I have like 2% of the necessary knowledge to understand what that article is on about, but is it not possible to replace the boot ROM with one that doesn't care if the HDMI is signed or not?
@gaeel no (it’s ROM), but it’s very possible that this is a special boot mode programmed with fuses, and not the default boot mode. i will check in the office.
@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.
