Except it does? The atmosphere team has found easter eggs in SX that are present only in atmosphere, and have confirmed that SX is mostly atmosphere code.
The lone original part in SX is its rom loading. Oh, and removed brick code.
Yes it would. That's what a cold copy is.
Atmosphere is licensed off of GPLv2, which stipulates, amongst other things, that those who make derivative copies must give credit--something which TX has refused to do.
Nobody's going to stop them, but it certainly doesn't give me any faith in them...
SX OS is a compilation of stolen Atmosphere code with a hacked together rom loader (and removed brick code) thrown on top.
The question isn't why we think it'll fix everything, it's when it will solve everything. Open source means that the community will have free reign to do whatever they feel...
We’ve yet to achieve quantum supremacy (the point where quantum computers are faster than supercomputers) much less usability.
When people say it might be possible for a quantum computer, that’s code for “don’t do it”!
The code is there, it's just that it never gets triggered--it loops infinitely instead. No clue if this has any consequence on the user, I'd personally doubt it.
Why they wouldn't get rid of it, I wouldn't know.
Also, thought this was interesting: The backup loader (the part that you pay for) is also mostly built ontop of atmosphere.
No I don't think they care. That's the whole point. Doesn't mean I'm obliged to not care.
