Re: Fingers crossed
Maybe, but we really need significant competition with silicon that provides all details about the hardware. Many of the available cores and SoCs are increasingly becoming closed black boxes with only a known CPU-API-model published.
Maybe Risc-V can add some transparency, but that is still only the core. The rest of the hardware needs to be accessible too for the programmers. We need to stop the walled garden politics. Then we get real competition on quality.
