If we want to have computing freedom, we're going to need computers that are safe and don't lock us out. Having actually well designed architectures (x86 sure ain't it) would be nice too. RISC-V is a beam of hope: https://riscv.org/
- India is making progress on fabb'ing their own RISC-V chips https://fossbytes.com/linux-on-shakti-india-risc-v-processor-iitm/
- FOSDEM video on RISC-V https://fosdem.org/2018/schedule/event/riscv/
Got other interesting RISC-V links?
@cwebber Oh, sure. But the point is, building a processor which doesn't have at least six peer-to-peer buses is yesterday's game. It has no place in tomorrow's.
The actual instruction set is a separate issue - although my preference is keep it simple.
