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."

Sure, they may make more hardware, and hopefully they won't f--k over Dale Rahn with it http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=openbsd-misc&m=108028112117093&w=2 .

You do realize that there is a follow up to that story, eh? And bringing that up is useless at this time.

I think the history of the company should be viewed repeatedly when people talk of it, it has a history of cheating people out of money for the work they've done. Hardly the kind of company I'd support in any of their ventures.

But in the case you presented it wasn't that scenario being played out, right?

As they say, there is a 'rest of the story'.

The Pegasos has served me well since 2003 and its still running strong. I got mine here:

Genesi has done well by Gentoo.

Genesi have sponsored me and Pegasos User Group, Sweden
several times. They have sponsored with trips to conventions,
and PUGS to arrange the PUSH alternative computer party.

Genesi is a very supportive company.
