Xiaomi has announced their spectacularly spec’ed Mi Note Pro, which features the latest in Qualcomm’s Snapdragon processors alongside a big 2K display and 4GB of RAM for a killer price. That being said, there’s something that is not-so-good about Xiaomi’s offerings that is a concern to many developers, especially many found here on XDA: Xiaomi’s repeated violations of the GPLv2 license for the Linux kernel which Android (and thus Xiaomi’s devices), is built on.
Somehow, this doesn’t surprise me.
So they should fix their GPL issues and all that. Sure. No doubt. Absolutely.
But, MAN!!!, that device is awesome.
The fix is simple. Call Linux with the rest of OSS communist and complain to the party that Xiaomi is anti-communist!
