Howdy, author Henry here. Yep, MoblinZone is astroturfing. But, it's also paying my bills during a career transition. And, they let me write whatever I want, and it's about Linux, so what the heck.
I edited LinuxDevices for six years, so I know a thing or two about closed drivers in the embedded world. No one at Intel suggested I write about this topic. In fact, I'm sure I'll get in trouble over it. But, it's something I feel needs to be clarified, because too many Linux folks buy these Poulsbo devices and then learn too late of the graphics driver issue. Heck, I know -- I was one of 'em.
Still don't think it's Intel's fault, though. They have to use best-of-breed graphics, if they want to compete in this new market. And, it wasn't their decision that the drivers be closed. And, in that market, at that value point, it's hard to imagine the drivers being open. My own view, not that of Intel.
