Yeah, and the T&C screen didn't allow wifi connections via captive portal or enterprise-wpa with certificates. (webos does allow these once you get past the initial screen). i ended up making my android phone a wifi hotspot to get past the initial screen

The side effect is that "A system that ships with only OEM and Microsoft keys will not boot a generic copy of Linux" (or other unsigned operating system for that matter). I think he is right to suggest we should be concerned.
First time I've heard this mentioned. This really is the successor to the BBC Micro!
"Something we didn’t realize is that Raspberry Pi not only intend to make this PC work through a HDMI and DVI connection, they also want it plugged into old analog TVs just like kids managed with in the 80s. It also means you don’t need an up-to-date display in order to start playing with this device"
I have loved all the years that I have been a developer and architect
for Scientific Linux, but it is time for me to move on. I have accepted
a job offer from Red Hat to work on their new openshift project.
( https://www.redhat.com/openshift/ )
My last day working for Fermilab, and on the Scientific Linux project
will be September 2, 2011.
Thank you to everyone who has encouraged, thanked, and helped me over
the past 8 years that I have worked on Scientific Linux. I have said it
before, and I'll say it now, The Scientific Linux community is one of
the best communities there is.

Speaking to EE Times during a discussion of ARM's first quarter financial results CEO Warren East said: "AMD is a successful company selling microprocessors. ARM is in the business of licensing microprocessor designs. It is perfectly natural that we should have been trying to sell microprocessor designs to AMD for about the last ten years. Hitherto we haven't been successful."
East also said: "AMD has signaled they are going through a rethink of their strategy, and that must provide a heightened opportunity for ARM. They might use ARM microprocessors in the future and you've got to expect that we would be trying to persuade them of that."
