Although the price probably isn't what people were hoping for.

I hope Genesi make an official statement soon. I'm definitely tempted to get one, if it can be made cool and quiet enough.

Is the named price for the board and processors only? It will be interesting to see how it compares to Apple's Quad G5 (at $3299).

I think I will probably get one. I'm a pretty big PowerPC fan, and would like to do everything I can to keep PowerPC going.

As far as the price, I am pretty sure that will be for a complete system. Judging by its name, Open Server Workstation, I suspect it is a complete system intended to replace their current G4 based Open Desktop Workstation (or if not replace, be a companion product to).
