Really wish all these ARM SBCs had a common basic firmware providing a simple framebuffer device over HDMI and USB HID keyboard support. Like, a Basic Input/Output System that software developers could rely on. That would be neat.

@djsundog at some point we'll relearn the lessons of the S100, the ISA bus, and VGA; namely that standards shared across a platform means one less thing to worry about


*whistles and waves* Over here!

One of the reasons for building all my own cores from scratch is exactly to offer a platform where this is the preferred reality. I'm even interested in building a FOSH backplane eventually.

I'm really quite far away from achieving any of my goals at the moment; but, if you ever stumble across the project someday, you'll know why I did things the way they were. :)
