Hardware, Embedded Systems And yes, another item, right away. I'm on the hunt for a mini-ITX motherboard for use in a living room HTPC, and considering there's so much choice out there, I'm a little confused. Then I realised I have you people to help me out, and, well, one thing led to another.

I'm all for alternative OSs myself (heck, I'm even developing one myself, even though as far as I'm concerned the current ARM ecosystem could die a painful death), but his "I want it to replace my work PC and connect with my iPad" requirement is quite strong.


Let ARM die? Do you want a world without HTPC's, Smartphones, Network computer and iPad's (yes it's an ARM derivative)?

Only the current closed ARM ecosystem ;) Bring me unlocked bioses and easy flashing on most devices, full and free kernel developer documentation that's comparable to the Intel one, and a decent level of cross-SoC standardization, and I'm all for developing ARM stuff myself.
