Comment Re:FOSS and ham radio need fully open FPGAs (Score 1) 51

Dude, You need to get out more often. I want to post a stinging response, but I don't even know where to start. I work on FPGAs on a daily basis; they are powerful devices, but I have no desire to know the most subtle details. The work of 100's of engineers goes into the development of this year's best devices. Do you propose to gather and employ their combined knowledge somehow? You'd never finish a project.

Your template comparing FPGAs to the GCC compiler is flawed. There is a great economy of scale for FOSS compilers. There isn't one for FPGAs.

Nice rant, wrong topic, IMHO.

Administration policies are anti-tax? Really? The GDP suffers due to the heavy load of higher taxes and regulation.

The real story is that things like NASA, NIH, Roads/Bridges, border enforcement aren't important to dear leader, so the budget for those entities suffers.

Now make the case that NASA has suffered due to the anti-tax movement. I'm listening.
