Ugh, no I just want an FPGA to play with and do whatever: make a DSD
processor or maybe an evil atomic powered robot.  Anyway, I was just
wondering if anyone can tell me of any FPGA's that are made by
Free/Open-Source friendly companies.

I basically just switched topics randomly, there, ahaha sorry about that.

But about the Sony thing, you are talking about the Sonoma? or
something else?  Haha, I think the Sonoma is out of my price-range
(for now...).  Besides I hate Sony, (although I"m thinking about
