Morphos PPCNux (German) as well as Pegasos-Forum (German) report about new information about Genesi's new G5 based mainboard. The mainboard which will feature the PowerPC 970MP CPU will have the new microBTX format (26.4x26.7cm/10.4"x10.5"). As system controller IBM's 945 northbridge was chosen which is the corresponding version of the current PowerMac's system controller. ATI will provide the graphics chipset for the new mainboard. It is currently not known which product name the mainboard will have. In addition, Mupper 1.0 has been released.

What does Genisis plan on shipping with the board operating system wise? They used to ship morphos, however they broke contract with the morphos team(and quit paying for development claiming checks are in the mail). So will they be shipping PPC Linux cds? I dunno how moral it is to purchase hardware from such a company that turns it's back on developers and then sets up websites claiming they own all rights to the work of developers that are only licensing their work...

"Turns the back on developers and owns the rights to the work done!?"
Sorry,never saw them do that. They do not even ship MorphOS with the platform any more.

Why would MorphZone exist if you are correct?

Are you an OS4 troll? Are you Mike Bouma?
Genesi is hard working and have donated MANYmachines to the open source movement. Who are you?
