It’s pretty common knowledge Nvidia users get some good drivers at the trade-off of binary blob drivers (or not, depending on your ethics) and that AMD are often left in the dust, but how can open source drivers change that?

Newark Element14′s $79, Linux-ready “SAMA5D3 Xplained” SBC showcases Atmel’s SAMA5D3 processor, with features like dual LAN ports and Arduino compatibility. Last year we saw two Linux-supported, SODIMM-style computer-on-modules based on the Atmel SAMA5D3 system-on-chip: the Glomation GECM-5100 and the ShiraTech AT-501. Now, in collaboration with Atmel, Newark Element14 has delivered an open source “SAMA5D3 Xplained” […]

Not unlike Hunter S. Thompson’s drug-addled road trip to Las Vegas to cover the Mint 500 figuring out intellectual property in technology is a wild ride. I thought about this for a while and since I am not a lawyer (IANAL) especially not one of the caliber of Dr. Gonzo’s sidekick lawyer Raoul Duke so I’ll have to speculate.

In common with every other ARM-based SoC, using the VideoCore IV 3d graphics core on the Pi requires a block of closed-source binary driver code (a “blob”) which talks to the hardware. In our case, this blob runs on the VPU vector processor of the BCM2835 (the SOC or System On a Chip at the heart of the Raspberry Pi); our existing open-source graphics drivers are a thin shim running on the ARM11, which talks to that blob via a communication driver in the Linux kernel. The lack of true open-source graphics drivers and documentation is widely acknowledged to be a significant problem for Linux on ARM, as it prevents users from fixing driver bugs, adding features and generally understanding what their hardware is doing.

While a lot of headway has been made during the GNOME 3.10 and 3.12 development cycles for allowing the GNOME Shell and rest of the desktop run natively on Wayland without a hard dependency on X11, it was decided that enabling the Wayland support by default will not happen now until at least GNOME 3.14. GNOME 3.12 will still work as a very reasonable Wayland tech preview, but there's some unfinished tasks to be addressed.
