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.

Ron, I agree...

I am a desktop USER that is eagerly awaiting the M$ replacement. I have tried 4 different Linux distros thus far and based on my experience I have to agree with Ron. Linux isn't ready for the desktop. Hardware recognition problems aside , installing programs on Linux is its biggest problem. I find myself more ambitious than average computer users but the hurdles I still have to make to use Linux is still to much of a problem. Until there is an EASY to use standard packaging format or repository that EVERY software developer adheres to, Linux will remain out of reach for most. Unfortunatly, I'll be resigned to using Free Software on a non free OS until then.
