The discussion about and the 2 on the Purism Forum is really interesting.

There are people who would prefer over and (I'm counting me in - otherwise I wouldn't use a and a ).

I feel like a VisionFive 2, with open source drivers, firmware and software would be good enough for me. (iliketurtles)

I immediately had to think about the MNT Reform and their research in Risc-V.

Maybe they would be willing to evaluate putting an existing SOC like the StarFive StarFive JH7110 onto a CPU board for the MNT Reform to offer an alternative to the pricy MNT RKX7 FPGA Module. ?
