    I see no reason why the "Radeon HD" spec wouldn't also refer to the default MXM card of the non-prototype boards. Or do you mean the prototype boards will have onboard GPU instead of MXM slot?

    Isn't releasing the details of the hardware design mandatory to qualify as open source hardware, be it after completion of phase #2, phase #3 or phase #5?
