Morphos On BBRV's blog: "The PegasosPPC will be on sale this week for $399. Neither the board nor an upgrade card will be produced again by Genesi or bplan. It is the end of an era for us. It has been a great experience."

''it has a history of cheating people out of money for the work they've done.''

To the best of my knowledge, Genesi went through a time when expected funding didn't materialize, and money wasn't there for employees and contractors to one degree or another. This timeframe includes the infamous episodes of the OpenBSD port and the end of the MorphOS support. If you know about Genesi "cheating people" before that time period or since, please give the details, as I believe your generalization about Genesi's "history" is groundless.

I don't think Genesi's past should be whitewashed, but I also don't think it's fair to make broad overstatements without facts. In my experience with them (some contracted web work and related support), they have been fair and there was no cheating. And this seems to be the general experience, certainly in more recent, less rocky times. If you have information to the contrary, please be specific.
