Very, very impressive initiative. Konstantinos, just clone that MPC8610 evaluation board in you have at the smallest possible cost, that's all.
Those dual cores look sexy, and we all know multiple cores are the trend these days. But there's a better trend: Classy programming! Give certain people a clever, single core, AltiVec equipped computer, and the only problem will be asking yourself what good use you could give to such a nice computer. Because making a computer just for the sake of it is very educating (the kind of task that governments should fund!), but not a business.
Attempt the smaller standard form factor, because it's likely that people will like tu put your computer inside places more interesting than a desktop case.
And... go for it! If bPlan is behind, that's a guarantee in itself. Are Gerald and Thomas excited yet?
