I'm not attacking anyone on the list. You seem to think I'm making a
moral judgement on a particular person, I'm not. Nor do I find fault
with the list for broadcom's poor comportment. My point is that that
speculation can't account for Broadcom's reluctance to release specs
globally. And I stand behind that. Now any speculation that must
happen must take place within a global worldview because we live in a
world where business is global and Freebsd is global just as Broadcom is
a global business.
Yes, well fine. Why don't you initiate a lobby group like
OpenBSD does ? They seem to be having success. They might
even already have something going on for Broadcom. Alternatively,
contact Broadcom and tell them you're not happy.
And I dare to presume that this list is also global
as I don't believe it limits its discussion to American topics or how
technology solely affects the American human condition.
No, but it's off topic at this point. And discussing the
technical aspects of reverse engineering the Broadcom specs or
similar would still be off-topic, as this is the PPC discussion list.
