I wanted to just drop a quick note that we're making *great* progress
toward having early 96Boards "Cello" boards for Fedora enablement
purposes. These are (AArch64) AMD Seattle based boards:
These are SBSA/SBBR compliant boards that (from a software point of
view) look just like ARM servers. They're also low-ish cost (for a
server - $300+the cost of RAM and disk, etc.). Yes, they're not in a
standard ATX form factor. We know this. Before you rant about that,
consider that the goal here is to give developers a tiny board on their
desk that happens to meet the software requirements for server - we all
hope there will be many more server platforms that are ATX size soon.
We ought to be in a very solid position to be able to support these
quickly in Fedora. I've got plans in place to get some early boards to
key folks needed to make that happen. I've also previously booted Fedora
on an early board with a couple of tweaks that need cleanup. I'll
followup with details, and with the individuals who are getting early
boards (they know who they are) to help get this moving.
This is good news, especially that they are non-junk SBSA/SBBR-
I ordered one of these the day they were announced. Any idea when
they'll be delivered :-?
