Really wish all these ARM SBCs had a common basic firmware providing a simple framebuffer device over HDMI and USB HID keyboard support. Like, a Basic Input/Output System that software developers could rely on. That would be neat.


@djsundog You joke, but coreboot *does* support a lot of ARM chips. It's just that there are a lot more than what they support. (Also there are fewer standards for ARM bringup. It's mostly an accident of history / adversarial interoperability that x86 is so compatible.)

@aschmitz yeah, it's really the missing names in that directory tree that chafe, like broadcom and allwinner ;)
