That's the model B. The model A the parent is talking about doesn't have ethernet support at all.

Even though the interesting parts of the RPi's GPU drivers remain closed source (the parts that run on the GPU), they have opened up enough of it that the drivers can easily be ported to different operating systems, or even used without an OS. It's not much but it's still better than the rest of the ARM SoCs.
Not necessarily. OpenGL ES has different profiles for floating-point and fixed-point arithmetic.
Developers have been able to self-publish on the PSN (PS3, Vita and upcoming PS4) for a while now.
Wasn't it also rumoured that the console won't work if the Kinect camera isn't connected?
No, it runs BSD instead.
Ouya is Android, not Linux.
It's called Raspberry Pi.
They won't put the RAM on top of the GPU, what they'll put on top of each other are the RAM chips.
The serious [floating point] performance increase has a few caveats: you have to use either AVX2 or FMA3,
Isn't AVX2 just the integer version of AVX? Like SSE2 added integer versions of the SSE floating point instructions? If so, that sentence doesn't make sense.
If that's a Steambox, then any PC that can run Steam and be connected to a TV is also a Steambox.
Nobody knows what a Steam Box is, let alone what hardware it uses.
Not to mention, with phrases like "I'm sure there was a negotiation that went on," the guy just seems to be speculating about what happened, instead of, you know, being there during the negotiations.
Isn't that exactly what this update provides? It doesn't have any new features, just bug fixes and stability improvements.
