Morphos Pegasos.org has (one of) the (only) first reviews of the Efika, the system on a chip thing from Genesi (or bPlan? I lost track). "What can I say? It's a great piece of hardware. bPlan lives up to our expectations yet again. They even exceeded them about its media capabilities. For thin client or tiny desktop usage it will work just fine as long as you choose a low footprint window manager. As a network workgroup server I can't see any difficulties with this hardware. Configure it and you're set."

Hi Peter, we are just getting started on this one. We quoted 1000 units/month for a year yesterday at $99. When we start moving some volume the prices will follow. It is long, so you can read the very beginning and a couple of paragraphs at the end if you are interested, as this sums up the approach: http://bbrv.blogspot.com/2006/12/efika-comes-to-life.html

We have also have an objective we share with OLPC: http://power2people.org/goals1.html

Best regards,
R&B ;)
