In the mranwhile I still monitoring ongoing of Open Source Hardware Laptop PPC Project from an italian hacker and young engineer but nothing still in sight...
Well, he has a website
We can hope its in design phase, target is end of 2015.
What is new is that its supposed to be multicore 64-bit PPC laptop, which is leap forward from Mac models.
Interesting, FAQ reveals idea to virtualize PPC consoles emulation in addition to use Linux, so might be a first PPC gaming laptop
Will it be a success depends on design as well as on crowfunding, I hope we are at stage 2) - Actions to spread the idea.
Will it be "Gnome pants plan" or reality, waits. However, it would be good to contact the author to see what we can do as interested group.
Have you attempted a crowd source campaign?
A crowd source campaign could be an option ( in a next stage), another option could be a group buying campaign ( we are building a work-group of studying about these topics , contact us if you would like to join)
What is the roadmap?
Build a multi-disciplinary project team
Actions to spread the idea
Beta tester program for software optimization
To go into production before the end of 2015
