From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Linux is a family of open source Unix-like operating systems based on the Linux kernel, an operating system kernel first released on September 17, 1991 by Linus Torvalds. Linux is typically packaged in a Linux distribution (or distro for short).
Distributions include the Linux kernel and supporting system software and libraries, many of which are provided by the GNU Project. Many Linux distributions use the word “Linux” in their name, but the Free Software Foundation uses the name GNU/Linux to emphasize the importance of GNU software, causing some controversy.

imo the author cuts framework too much slack here. there are lots of laptops sold with linux preinstalled and/or certified to have complete hardware compatibility with linux these days; vendors like purism, system76, star labs, and even the giants like lenovo, dell, and HP ship linux-certified laptops now. why can’t framework?!
Still dont know why they didn’t go with amd. Thunderboltisn’tt really necessary since most of the modules are areUSBC.
Also Intel ME, ew.
Thunderbolt 4 is not exclusive to Intel, only 1-3
I’ve just ordered parts for a new AMD system with Thunderbolt 4 (transferring some parts from an older machine): https://pcpartpicker.com/user/jokeyrhyme/saved/dLCRVn
No, usb4 has the thunderbolt3 spec inside it, which amd now supports. Thunderbolt 4 is Intel only.
It’s mostly a certification thing (which is performed by Intel): https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thunderbolt_(interface)#Royalty_situation
According to that, anyone can make the standalone chips now regardless of CPU (although most of them are still made by Intel, I think)
