Libre Hardware is categorized into several parts :

  • Libre Hardware (specs, no closed and hidden parts) that fully support some LibreSoftware
  • Open or Closed Hardware which is fully usable using exclusivly LibreSoftware
  • Open Hardware that can/will support LibreSoftware (enough parts of the specs are avialable)
  • Open or Closed Hardware that supports LibreSoftware
  • Closed Hardware which is build over “hidden” LibreSoftware : shame
  • Closed Hardware that does not support any LibreSoftware

(well actually those dont belong to LibreHardware, you can blacklist them)

LIBRE FIRMWARE & PLEASE RELEASE PRISONNED SOURCE CODE

It seems that lot of Companies are using Libre Software, but some of them do not release their source code (as the GPL licence should ensure).

I am trying to write a document to explain “why releasing firmware code is the good choice” to make more money, to earn more clients, to make more reliable products etc ReserveEngineering
