Huawei is not the only one. Almost all software companies have some KPI that employees are farming. (speaking from experience here)


It’s probably because those with decision making authority have no idea what open source is and how it works.

That being said, China is a huge contributor to open source. For example Huawei and Alibaba are among top kernel contributors.


Turkey has a pretty ambitious plan for Linuxification. Same with the Münich city government in Germany.




They also released vkd3d 1.4. I wonder if wine and proton will ever merge vkd3d forks.


Steam usebase is huge, around 20-30 million active users at any given time (probably much more in total). They need to ship a lot more Decks to have an impact on the statistics.

But on the good side, there is this: https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2022/06/valve-to-ship-more-than-double-the-number-of-steam-decks-each-week/

Excerpt below: "Realistically, there are probably a bunch of people at the company who shouldn't be here. Part of my hope by raising expectations and having more aggressive goals, and just kind of turning up the heat a little bit, is that I think some of you might decide that this place isn't for you, and that self-selection is OK with me."

Those two rules are good common sense rules.



Having an open ISA like RISC-V increases competition in the market. Better for us consumers.

I agree that it’s not completely open, but having an open ISA is alteady a huge step forward.



ARM is owned by a company. RISC-V instruction set is open.



cross-posted from: https://lemmy.ml/post/340026 > This is great for moving RISC-V to mainstream. Pine64 makes great hardware.

But I assume the binary compiled for ARM won’t work for RISC-V


The reason young men went hard-right in the last decade is because left-wing movements stopped talking about issues that affect men. The vacuum was filled by people like Jordan Peterson.

You can’t build a popular movement and be dismissive of half of the population.


nice! do you know if it’s just a matter or compiling against a different target or is there more?


Isn’t Armbian for arm chips? They also support RISC-V now?




Is it now safe to assume that all games now work in Linux?
I remember those dark days when I would check winehq before buying games because I didn't know if they would work in Linux or not. I realized recently that I stopped checking winehq or protondb, because I implicitly assume that everything will "just work". Hard to say when this transition happened, but it feels at least a few years old. Looking at latest stats, the only holdouts appear to be those games that explicitly ban Linux users with some quasi-malware anti-cheat. https://www.gamingonlinux.com/2022/06/3500-games-now-steam-deck-verified-or-playable/ What a time we live in!

It's so obvious even the mainstream media gets it.

US Sanctions are resulting in a chipmaking boom in mainland China.

Language Filters
As more Lemmy instances come online, I see more and more content under All from languages I do not speak. Is there a way to implement a language filter, or to manually remove those instances from my feed?

We're seeing an increase in the number of native ports.
