What happened there?

Xavier Wilson

The libreboot project-owner tranny, during its public meltdown, started namedropping this project hard in an attempt to spite GNU/coreboot. There isn't a two-way affiliation, it was done purely to leech off another project's PR.
Raptor Engineering could have made a statement distancing themselves from the spergout, like the actual libreboot developers did, but they stood back and let it poz them up.

Nobody in their right mind is going to give money to something tainted by the SJW, and it turns out most of the potential audience for this were in their right mind.

Oliver Cooper

Less than 500 people pledged? Yikes, goes to show those $10 computers have drastically changed the playing field.

And why didn't they try to get the Amiga crowd on board? Is because they went with POWER rather than PPC?

Austin Sanders
Austin Sanders

Geez OP could you rein in the faggotry? There's many reasons this failed, like the high cost and that x86 has solidified into everything. The fact it got $500000 pledged is pretty surprising, and serious kudos to them for trying.

If you have $9000 or more to spend on a desktop, sure.

Why would Amiga people care about a workstation computer?

some SJW supported a project
that taints the whole project and makes it "SJW"
How does it feel knowing that "SJW" is as meaningless now days as "racist" due to overuse to describe everything a certain group of people don't like.

Could always go back to the idea of an SBC cluster that uses an OS like Qubes that's been brought up on Holla Forums before. Basically have a master SBC allot different processes to slave SBCs instead of VMs. It wouldn't be ideal but it could be more scalable and potentially more powerful than whatever free option are out there today. From my understanding it's also a lot cheaper and easier to find companies willing to make a free device when it's lower power or more dated.

Jeremiah Hughes
Jeremiah Hughes

You're both wrong. SJW hasn't lost its meaning, but it can be appl to a lot of groups.

Nicholas Taylor
Nicholas Taylor

We all know the real reason it failed is because it's too fucking expensive.

Power8 isn't cheap, it's much more expensive than even an overpriced i7. It costs as much as a Xeon, a CPU you don't even see many loaded PC builders using. You can buy OpenPower hardware but it'll cost about as much as a decent used car on CL.

$3-4k for a system is a bit pricey, especially for NEETs.

Jacob Morris
Jacob Morris

Well it wasn't aimed at NEETs. Trying to break the high-end x86 market was a lofty goal. Also it's more like $5k and that's if you're in the USA. Foreigners are looking at even more.

Jason Turner
Jason Turner

Because they're the only ones I can think of that still use an OS that is stuck on PPC and have funded similar projects to this one like like the x1000.

Granted the x1000 aught to keep them happy for another decade. Even with a few hundred Amiga users this was destined to fail.

Christopher Turner

The project tanked because it lacked proper exposure. Even people within IBM who work on the POWER8 or whatever the processor name didn't know this effort from Talos existed. Also, Talos didn't even get invited to a world gathering about IBM's POWER8. How fucked up is that?

In general, Tranny meltdown had little impact as Talos campaign wasn't widespread enough. Plus most tech literate people who deal with BIOS and FLOSS would be able to separate tranny meltdown and Talos.

Matthew Miller
Matthew Miller

That's a goal that every non-x86 HPC has struggled with since the rise of AMD64. Not even Apple could do it, opting to cut costs by switching to Intel chips instead of shelling out money on PPC.

If you really wanted a Power system and you were loaded with cash, you didn't need to fund the Talos. You can buy a Power8 server from say Tyan or IBM for around that price you mentioned too, and those are already on the market.

New(er) laptops have actually had UEFI updates that patch known flaws. This isn't just some "what if" situation that some security expert is talking about either, a UEFI rootkit was found in the hacking team leak.

https://archive.fo/P5phb

How autistic do you have to be to keep building your OS around a CPU architecture that you can't even find in affordable hardware outside of old PowerMacs in questionable condition and maybe some old IBM Power servers?

Might as well switch to ARM by now.

It's goal was also huge. The EOMA68 also didn't get too much exposure outside the free/libre software community, and it raised less than the Talos did. The difference? It only had a $150k goal VS $3+ million. It's a lot easier to meet a smaller goal for a niche product than it is to meet a multimillion dollar goal.

Oliver Reyes
Oliver Reyes

I liked the concept but it was fairly obvious they didn't know what they were getting into.

It wasn't priced competitively, they didn't bother to do any sort of advertising, and rather than make a useful video explaining why the computers good for people who aren't in the know, they make a 45 minute powerpoint presentation while a guy OD'ing on percocets whispers libre into your ear.

The computers were damn good, the people making it just didn't understand how to manage a professional project like this. The tranny flapping its mouth was the least of their concerns.

Cameron Hall
Cameron Hall

Pretty much this. You could probably find a fair number of people/companies/governments with money to throw at a true libre machine. The problem is that nobody fucking new about it, and the people who did know couldn't afford it.

Robert Fisher
Robert Fisher

Pretty sure that few people who were looking to purchase a Talos system would have installed libreboot on it when the IBM developed alternative is superior and is free software (Apache license).

It failed because its a niche system and they were asking like $5k USD each with a total goal of $3.7M USD.

The computers were damn good, the people making it just didn't understand how to manage a professional project like this.
Also this, Raptor cant into marketing.

Not really, it's those who seek attention that are making trouble so obviously we see them first.

Thinking that every people who are against mental illness is a pollack.
The vast majority of people who bitch about trannies don't even know when and why it's considered a mental illness and mostly just bitch about trannies because they're different. Putting their bitching before supporting FOSS, especially when the complaint here is that people behind this project didn't denounce a tranny who supported their project because simply having external support from a tranny taints your project, shows that they don't want to be part of this board's community and are just here to push their unrelated political views.

Always make me kek people getting triggered by a simple "she". You guys are worst than SJW, please change.
People who refers trans womans "she" not always believe that they are womans. Also, acting like "the king of true" won't work on trans people because it's a mental illness, it will only will hurt them. And why to hurt someone when you can simply change a few words? (Rhetorical question)

You are not against the mental illness you are against the people who is ill, which makes no sense.

Dunno, probably had more male role models or something. :^)

Leo Martinez

I honestly don't even care that they're mentally ill, unless they start screeching and raging for no reason at all (common when they're undergoing hormone treatment and/are from California i.e. perpetually offended) and at that point if they've annoyed me I wouldn't really think twice about misgendering them.
This is only really a problem for those who don't pass and make a big deal of it. If someone presents themselves as a woman and doesn't have eternal manface I probably wouldn't really notice unless I took a good look at their bone structure.
I have a local hackerspace that had a run-in with the stereotypical dramatic trannys. To this day thanks to SEO the tranny is still plastered to their name, even though her stupid little blog is missing her insane affronts that caused a call for "her" access to be suspended.
Genderfluid faggots are the real cancer, anyways. Assuming you aren't interacting with one who's mind is unstable during hormone treatment.

Aiden Richardson
Aiden Richardson

don't even know when and why it's considered a mental illness
Oh for fuck sakes.
They is only one way to be transgender and when you are it's because of a genetic disorder.
If you don't have the said genetic disorders it's in your head.
It's has simple has that.
Real transgender people are already unstable due to their condition (it's not always the case some live correctly).
But people who aren't stable in the head because they think they are X (because of X sad reasons) and then takes chemical treatment to be X is just batshit insane.
It is a mental illness when no genetic disorder is found.

Putting their bitching before supporting FOSS
shows that they don't want to be part of this board's community and are just here to push their unrelated political views.
Bullshit.
Bullshit because having people that aren't going to go batshit insane or doing stupid decisions is also caring about the community.
What if Francis gets a bribe from agencies in exchange for advance surgical treatment that you can't find via the normal ways ?
inb4 muh slippery slope

You say that I don't care about FLOSS ?
Francis neither in that case.
If he really cared about FLOSS that much he wouldn't have just tried fucking the FSF at the first possible attempt.
He would have cared about the project and continued making good software and solutions.
I want to see project like libreboot flourish but not under someone who proved to be mad.

triggered
That in your head m8 correcting she into he is just a normal procedure so that people aren't mislead.
People who refers trans womans "she" not always believe that they are womans.
Agreed some people simply don't know or don't care..

it will only will hurt them. And why to hurt someone when you can simply change a few words?
it will only will hurt them
Indeed but that's how you learn something either the result is good or bad.
It will maybe initiate the process that will help them or not.
But choosing to oblige with desires of the mental illness of that person can also be a motivator for the said person and it doesn't help.

You guys are worst than SJW, please change.
Yes because I go shout to my neighbour an every possible people in the world that trannies has to be gassed instead of being medically/psychologically helped.
Don't make assumptions user some of us just want them to be cured not to be killed.

I honestly don't even care that they're mentally ill
Then in that case you aren't a good HR :^)

Wrong.
nice argument
Even people who do plastic surgery are designed has mentally troubled people by the medical profession (well except those who where mutilated for x reasons)

The tranny wasn't part of the team trying to make this TALOS system a reality.
Wasn't talking about TALOS but about libreboot.
Every communities should beware of unstable people and it's quite already difficult without seeing the people via the internet.
And we also have bullshit COC for inclusion now.
It's like opening the door to all mentally ill people in projects.
When very important project like libreboot gets fucked by ONE person other projects depending on the said project will suffer indirectly.
And TALOS could have succeed imo if that shit wouldn't have happened.
note: I have taken into note what the other anons said, it's quit an ambitious project.

And I can bet you that Francis will trash FOSDEM 2017.

/pol/ tier conspiracy involving someone who isn't even part of the project, or any project that isn't dead at this point

Wyatt Morris

And TALOS could have succeed imo if that shit wouldn't have happened.
If the only places speaking highly of it was the Libreboot community that's all on the Raptor Engineering people for failing at PR, and advertising, they really needed to get the name out there and talk it up, the hardware itself actually looked nice.

Also you don't get to choose who speaks of you. Libreboot might be run by a nutter, but it's also one who has similar values to the FSF, and a high-end workstation with minimal blobbing and user control is obviously gonna be of great interest to them.

Saying it's /pol/ fault every time doesn't make it true.
Right back at you, but trannies or SJWs instead of /pol/.

Logan White
Logan White

this is the most amazing ad-hoc hypothesis I've heard from /pol/ yet. Talos wouldn't have secured that much money with or without Libreboot, trannies, etc., anyway. In fact, I'm pretty sure the main reason Raptor Engineering is known among their target audience is their work in coreboot/libreboot.

What kind of moron would need to retribute Rowe's childish behavior with an official statement of disapproval? Your shitty anti-gay political ideology is simply not worth the time of actual engineers. As far as I'm concerned only one libreboot developer expressed wanting to distance himself from libreboot.

Time for you to leave the /pol/ closet, accept that you aren't straight if you are watching traps porn, and believe in less scape-goating conspiracy theories in the meantime

well, they raised more than double the money of EOMA68, but the goal was too high and the FLOSS market small.

I'm sure that Francis was a pretty good person who had little mental health issues until some tranny or sjw began brainwashing him.
these convoluted denialist explanations never cease to amaze me. I must admit only in an anonymous board real retards are able to show their true exotic colors

Wyatt Taylor
Wyatt Taylor

I agree that their marketing was garbage level but you cannot exclude what Francis didn't affect them.

Libreboot might be run by a nutter, but it's also one who has similar values to the FSF
If Francis did have the same values he wouldn't have done what he did.
Like said before he put is political belief before free software.
Never mix political views and tools they don't mix together.

Right back at you, but trannies or SJWs instead of /pol/.
Hey I am not the one who shouts "muh /pol/" each time something isn't going my way.
The fact that Francis is a mentally ill person who want/thinks he's a trans and his supported by people who are part the sjw community perfectly fits the context of what happened.
It's not like if I said "it's the jews" or some insanity that doesn't match the context (of the libreboot separation).

I think you're seriously exaggerating his role in the failure. Even if I'm wrong it's still the fault of Raptor for not promoting it well enough, then they could've drowned him out as a lone nutter.

Like said before he put is political belief before free software.
At its core, Libreboot is still about software freedom, like the FSF. This drama is secondary.

Power8 isn't cheap, it's much more expensive than even an overpriced i7. It costs as much as a Xeon
The POWER8 CPU is actually much cheaper than comparable Xeons, and cheaper per unit of performance than i7 Extreme CPUs. It's the rest of the platform that racks the cost up, not the CPU.

It wasn't priced competitively
Actually, it was. The full platform cost was in the ballpark of comparably powerful Intel-based ones.
The problem is that the set of people with the dosh to drop on a powerful and expensive system and the set of people who care about freedom do not intersect much.

To the contrary. Nobody except tech people gives shit about software liberties.

you didn't follow the rationale during the Talos campaign, did ya?

Computers produced in small runs for a niche free software market will always be fucking expensive.

The first RISC-V computers for mass consumption are going to be slower than the slowest of all ARM single-board computers, and also probably costly. Any RISC-V CPU that could compete in performance with modern x86 would occur years or even decades in the future.

can confirm you are a worthless /pol/ack living in his mom's basement.

counter counterpoint. I was to buy 50 fully-fledged Talos for my research centre, until I discovered they had distanced themselves from the only BIOS replacement that meets Stallman levels of autism. Coreboot is pozzed by Google and open sores mentality. I could certainly not support Talos going that route.

Lying about a person's sex is insulting to the listener's intelligence. If you're going to insult people, don't be surprised when they lash out back at you.

Also, this specific lie is these days being enforced in many places, from corporate environments to universities, with harsh punishments for people who refuse to lie. For this reason alone, this lie needs to be crushed wherever it's being pushed. We need to preempt the tyranny that comes with it before it is entrenched enough to harm us.

Oh please for thousands of years humans were called godly emissaries or given fanciful titles that had no basis in reality, no different than this guy being called a she. This isn't a new development and protesting it in this manner is ridiculous.

Those same universities and corporations will call the pope His Holiness as a proper social convention, not because they're wilfully perpetuating a disgusting lie but as a matter of showing the minimum amount of respect for different beliefs.

I don't mind people being uncivil or rude but don't try to justify it in this manner. You're just antagonizing them or those that support them because you can. You're not nobly exposing a lie.

The POWER8 CPU is actually much cheaper than comparable Xeons,
How retarded are you? From their own OpenSSL benchmarks it loses more than half the time to x86. And when it wins it does so by 5%-30% against a E3-1270. A 5.5 year old chip which costed $300 when it was new. The motherboard in OPs post costs $3,700 alone and goes up to $7,100 if you want the CPU and 128GB RAM. If they compared this to a Xeon E5-2600 it would have gotten it ass handed to it across the board and still been 1/4th the price.

cheaper per unit of performance than i7 Extreme CPUs
Oh wait you really are this retarded by somehow thinking a meme CPU with unlocked multipliers is what it should be compared against rather than a E5-2600.

It's the rest of the platform that racks the cost up, not the CPU.
They're charging ~$3,500 for the CPU and 128GB DDR3. The RAM isnt that much so its about $3k for a CPU. Go compare this to Intel's top of the line E5-2600 you retard.

When you yourself are not mentally ill and thus capable of seeing that a man thinking he's a woman or trying to "become" one = mental illness.

why

Because being a tranny is an act of self-destruction, it leads to consequences such as alienating your peers (mild) or even castrating yourself (severe).

Go ahead and keep defending a mentally ill person's right to self-harm because you're so open-minded. Just don't be surprised when people call you "SJW" for it.

And why to hurt someone when you can simply change a few words?

I think I've debated you before. Go back to tumblr.

Each his own actions, each his own consequences.

I don't care what other people choose as their destiny as long as it doesn't interfere with my freedom.

I however am probably going to be unintentionally rude, by calling you what you look like to me and if it's not a he or a she, I'll intuitively find another word to address a person. Not names though, I'm bad at names.

Witch is already happening.
The libreboot project failed because ?
Oh yeah I remember now !
The tranny maintainer had a meltdown.

Witch one is next ?
The maintainer of mediagolbin Christopher Webber ?

Christopher Webber is one of the main figures pushing for safe spaces at FSF events, and pushing cancerous COCs into every new programming language.

And guess what, the FSF updated their High priority project SJW flavor this time

So you don't care except if it touches your freedom ?
Then you should move your ass.

Still have some sjw that needs to get out of free software tho

Yea, you're right, but somewhat intentionally. One does choose to have a sex change, another choice would be to accept yourself as you are.

That doesn't interfere with my freedom. It would interfere with his freedom if I were to force another opinion or choice on him. I have the freedom to fork and continue the project if I wish, I freedom I always had.

It's never a freedom to impose something on others, that way the whole concept of freedom would break down.

Coreboot has the problem of including binary blobs in its system.

There's nothing wrong with a code of conduct that says "don't be a shitlord".

Tbh nano is normie crap while vi is god-tier. That's a good decision for all the bad reasons.

"Don't be a histrionic emotional wreck of a person" would be a better thing to put into a code of conduct, if you ask me.

I really don't know what they're trying to achieve on this site, as if /pol/ and /baphomet/ don't hang over it like a pair of vengeful spectres

Coreboot can probably pull over the documentation too, the one thing Libreboot actually did good with.

Isn't there a compilation option to not use them in Coreboot though? Pretty sure at this point Libreboot is irrelevant.

Sorry, you just cemented how hilarious that acronym is.
