So a port to ARM could be forseeable, with or without Oracle's involvement.
Mozilla recently stopped doing builds for Android, despite builds of CM11 being actively developed by the androidarmv6.org community.
AFAIK, Firefox OS currently only supports the armv7 architecture as found in later Qualcomm SoCs.
Apple phones are outside the price range of the masses in the developing world Mozilla is supposedly targetting.
So what you're saying is Firefox, the desktop browser, is too 'heavy' for a raspberry pi?
Firefox OS has been optimised for devices of 256MB or less.
You can probably find 2000 people that declare Kermit the Frog to be their personal savior.
As it happens, Miss Piggy and Yoda are both the puppets of Frank Oz.
I guess you don't know any "old people", then.
My uncle, by marriage, was born in 1920. His creaky 94yo bones don't get around so well but he still remembers the 20s and 30s quite sharply.
In my country dirty coal supplies most of the power, so electric cars might actually increase emissions.
Does USA electricity come from "clean" sources? I guess Monty Burns supplies much of the energy from low-emission nuke reactors...
Ubuntu does have backports - does this not handle 'Universe'? If it does then the dev just needs to add their package, surely.
Ease up, Android will be one of the few Linux distros by 2016 not using systemd.
My government licenses Doctor Who through the ABC, the federally funded national broadcaster
Why addict hundreds of thousands of Australian schoolchildren to Doctor Who, such as my 13yo nephew, and then deny them access?
We still have the queen - maybe I'll write an angry email to prince william!
Sorry, CBBC games and videos can only be played if you're in the UK.
Commonwealth citizenship apparently grants no privileges.
bo-ku is a perfectly cromulent word.
Seriously, what do people want? That nothing must be using Linux specific kernel features ever, because that is unfair to other OS's?
When I use gimp, pidgin, geany etc on a Windows desktop, it's because they consistently work well with a thin Gtk+ shim over Win32. That's without installing a Linux compatibility layer like cygwin.
If in future one has to install some cygwin-systemd abomination just to run Gimp, then free software will have lost a fan.
