Re: Intel Haswell support - Any updates?

I am wondering the same.. I am sure the very few developers we have are
working as much as they can on this.

However, the lack of support for the most common hardware since three years
back is, I believe, preventing many new users, beginners as well as
professionals, from coming to FreeBSD, and I hope the foundation would pour
some money into this to speed up the development...

Making it possible to use Wayland on FreeBSD would open up for a whole new
category on devices (mobile, IVI, etc) where many people are now wondering
whether to go Linux, Android or something else.. FreeBSD has the license
and the stability making it very attractive, all that's missing is a modern
graphics stack..

If I had the skills or resources I would pitch in but currently I don't so
all I can do is complain to the foundation.

I would love to see FreeBSD become the de facto OS in these new areas and
it feels like it could be within reach... Or maybe my feeling is way off,
correct me if I'm wrong :)

Sorry for the rant...
