Reddit: Firmwares are linux biggest problem

Friday 1st of September 2017 01:54:01 PM

More and more hardware have firmware or microcode in them. Firmware is a software that is running inside the hardware and can get updated from the users computer. Firmware upgrade software are executed in the host OS. The problem that i see with linux is that i can run it on various hardware but it is sometimes hard to get linux compatible software that can update the firmware. Companies ship faulty firmware because they now that they can update it later through firmware updates. The problem here is that you install a new computer with Linux and any bugs that are in the firmware will stay there.

When a computer manufacturer say that they support Linux that should also include shipping update software for the firmware.

  • INL releases new open-source software projects

    Idaho National Laboratory has released multiple new open-source software projects that are freely available to the public and open to collaboration directly with researchers and engineers outside of the laboratory. Fostering widespread distribution of this software will accelerate the adoption of these technologies within industry and fuel innovation in other research organizations that may build on them.

  • Open source data platform for smart agriculture proposed

    New Delhi, Aug 31 (PTI) A plan to create an open source data platform for "smart agriculture" was mooted by the Department of Biotechnology in a two-day conference that concluded today.

    It has been envisaged that the data platform FarmerZone will help cater to the needs of farmers by providing market intelligence, weather predictions, and information on soil, water and seed requirements.

    The Department of Biotechnology (DBT), under the Ministry of Science and Technology, convened the Smart Agriculture Conclave here in partnership with the UKs Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) and Research Councils UK (RCUK), India.

  • Dharma wants to let anyone borrow a small amount of cryptocurrency

    dApps, or decentralized apps, are open-source applications built on top of a blockchain. But here’s the thing – users usually can’t interact with these dApps unless they have tokens issued by these projects. For example, both Augur, a decentralized prediction market and REXMLS, a free global listing network for real estate, require tokens to interact with.

  • Estonia considering Ethereum-based cryptocoin

    Estonia is considering the issue of crypto-tokens, which would make it (almost) the first country to attract investment through an Initial Coin Offering (ICO). The scheme would let buyers of the new estcoin hold a stake in the Estonian economy.

    The estcoin would be based on the Ethereum infrastructure, a public open-source blockchain specifically developed to facilitate smart contracts.

  • OpenStack 'Pike' Focuses on Basics Instead of Gee-Whiz New Features

    There's a new release of OpenStack, the open source infrastructure-as-a-service platform for cloud computing. The new release, Pike, isn't chock-full of new features, as OpenStack's focus for the next several releases will be on stability, scalability, performance and ease-of-use.

    Actually, this is a good time for the platform's developers to step away from any mad rush to add new features and concentrate on improving the basics. Back in April, when we reported on Open Stack's ninth User Survey, we noted that although use of the platform was on the rise, in some cases user satisfaction was declining, most likely over usability issues.
