> Yeah, what BCOM has done should be enough to enable the community to add support for different window systems
What BCOM has now done, allows community to keep maintaining code regardless of how the kernel/X abi's change over time. Compare it with OMAP and PowerVR, once TI stops supporting beagleboard/beaglebone/pandaboard, community is stuck with the X and kernel's that remain compatible with last binary release of PowerVR drivers.
Community still can't fix any bugs in the BCOM firmware side or add new gl extensions - which can become a problem if new versions of X/wayland/whatever need a new extension.
But it is a step in the right direction.
> I think the progress on open drivers for mali and adreno, and what is starting to happen on tegra, is a lot more interesting and more beneficial for the community in the long run :-P
What worries me is the long run might take too long. Once mali400 and adreno support starts to work, SoC vendors may already have migrated to newer GPU designs.
