I tried to download architecture documents but I can not progress beyond the “View License Agreement” page.
There is no “Accept License Agreement” on that page and I can only close that page with no action.
I am using Chromium on Ubuntu 16.04.
Agreed. It seems an unnecessary barrier for something that is supposed to be open. RISC-V for example doesn’t require any kind of essay for download. If you really want to be open, in the modern sense, I would suggest the cores should be on github where people can freely fork them. Why would someone choose a ISA that maintains strict control over one that one that is more open? A gilded cage is still a cage. I think most would prefer freedom.
To quote Princess Leia from Star Wars: “The more you tighten your grip…, the more star systems will slip through your fingers.”
I hope for the best for this project, but it is already late (vs the (currently) more open RISC-V). Don’t make it too little, too late.
I very much agree with you.
I applied to download MIPS OPEN information last week.
They tell me “Your download request is awaiting approval. We aim to approve all download requests within 3 working days.”
But it has been a week, and I have not received a reply.
I am very disappointed.
