I would like to buy a fullly open source Single-board computer.
Members of a list about libre software told me that Raspberry isn’t fully open source : We can see that in https://www.fsf.org/resources/hw/single-board-computers : The Raspberry Pi requires nonfree software to start up. It can’t reach _ the point of executing free software unless this nonfree program is part _ of the installed system software. _The startup program is, in fact, the same program that runs the GPU _ and the video decoding hardware. Thus, the GPU and the video decoding _ hardware are unusable in the free world, but these jobs can be done with _ free software on the CPU. _That program appears to implement intentional restrictions, such as _ _blocking the video decoding hardware for MPEG-2 and VC-1 in the absence _ _of a key that is specific to the machine in hand. This nonfree startup _ program affects both models of the Raspberry Pi.
On this page they don’t talk about Banana Pi.
Is Banana Pi fully open source ? The firmware also ?
Thanks for your attention,
Best regards, Pepe
