Morphos A new product arises from Genesi: The Open Desktop Workstation is based upon the Genesi Pegasos, a CHRP based motherboard. Integrating selected Open Firmware and running multiple (15+) operating systems, the Workstation is an extremely efficient, very expandable hardware solution for personal and business computer requirements. Both IBM and Motorola feature the new product in their pages.

Hi Ron, the issue is how to introduce a change. Being "open" is one way to do that. The Open Community did not introduce and today impose the revolutionary changes it has by the restriction of information. Through the exchange of ideas and work one effort built on another. All great inventors started out with ideas and effort concieved elsewhere.

The question is whether the internet and computer literacy has found its way far enough into the fiber of humanity to inspire all the pieces to pull together in a collaborative effort such as this. We have all the required components at our disposal. It just a question of how to do it and frankly whether or not it is really a meaningful idea.
