Ugh, more really closed source stuff in it then most likely.

probably, but still, i’m just happy that we are finally going to be getting non-arm/x86 general purpose hardware :)

As much as I want to like RISK-V, at least this StarFive led effort seems like a step backwards over ARM/x86 hardware that can be run with a nearly fully libre software stack.

risc-v is licensed under cc, so there’s going to be a lot of progress in chip designing and manufacturing by more entities participating, which means more likely there will be someone making libre hardware, as opposed to an x86 duopoly

even if beagle-v in particular is going to end up really locked up for whatever reason (i personally don’t think so), it will pave the way for libre hardware potential in the future, at least in my opinion
