Here’s my list:
- UEFI. Plenty of other very sensible booting technologies exist, like Libreboot, U-boot, etc. You can even set a jumper to choose which boot device you want to boot from. There’s your non-insane “secure boot”! A jumper! Thank you so much, Raspberry Pi people! I’ve wanted that for a long time now.
- NTFS, ExFAT, VFAT
- SVGA connectors
- Any support for the 486 and 386. I applaud the Linux kernel chopping it off, under the 586.. I sure wouldn’t miss any of those other exotic kinds of CPU that are also proposed for the chopping block.
- Any 32-bit Intel architecture anything. 64bit is not asking for the moon any more. You know that favorite 32bit game you still want to keep playing? Well, if you can’t get it to run in an emulator, there are 100 games out there you’ve never played before, for every game you feel as though you’ve lost.
- Line Instant Messenger
