I'm sure it'll happen eventually. With the recent bad publicity around their 
kernel code, perhaps they'll see the benefits of cooperating a bit more with 
other people.

I guess this is with regard to FSF certification and whether you could offer 
the jz4775 within a RYF-branded campaign. And I guess that Debian is still out 
of the picture, which I think is the distro of choice for the MIPS Creator 
CI20 and CI40, those being perhaps the closest products to what you'd be 

Of course, offering no bundled operating system would also be an option.
