    What for?


    In the beginning I believed they want to use EFI firmware that actually is not compatible with any Amiga-Like Operating System.

    As long I read specs, this laptop will run with U-Boot that is good for AmigaOS only.

    MorphOS instead uses Open-smart firmware to run and if I remeber well chip used for Open-Firmware is twice big as U-Boot. Am I wrong?

    In some docs they say they "intended" to open it... In the faq you pointed they say they are "considering" to but project is not open.

    I hope it will not end in opening the project in the same way that Genesi promised with Pegasos II motherboard, when they disclosed pratically nothing...
