The problem Broadcom has in comparison with other SoC makers is they never open source their drivers except under extreme duress.

Broadcom absolutely sucks to work with in every way. They are truly awful, even if you are doing closed source development and sign all their NDAs ad nauseum.

Bill Gate's dream is a world completely run by proprietary software, and a business model subsidized by government enforced statutory monopoly.

Artificial barriers to entry is exactly preventing technology from being available to the underprivileged.

The idea that Gates wants ANYBODY to have cheap computing technology is laughable. Water? Fine. Anything more advance than that? Tough luck. Pay your lords, serfs.

The negative connotation of the term was invented by guys calling eachother "bro" and engaging in misogynist behaviour which sometimes includes predatory sexual practices that can extend to rape.

They did not assign that meaning to the word bro. You (and others) just did, to disparage a subgroup of men, not women.
