    That's already a bad sign. Makes me think of ARIX. I got one or two mails and then complete silence.

    Well, at least they have active forum as I pointed (and linked) in the discussion about price of MorphOS that two people found too expensive.

    You ignored in posting #43 my mention of them in comment #42. That's what I (wrongly) interpreted as saying you wasn't. And if you were, I still don't know how my "pointing out those lower cost PPCs" is similar to what their comments say.

    > the second comment was directly in regard to "asking manufacturers".

    Sorry, lost again.

    > Where did you get lost?

    There: "I think Andreas mentioned something similar to me over a year ago."

    "Open Source Hardware" is still debatable I think.

    Or the other way round? ;-)

    And everything around P-Cuped is (still) dead silent:

    (so perhaps that truly can be considered as "dead" project)

    Oh you know what I meant! ;-) English isn't my first language. And not even my second for years, but my third.

    What? An open source Power PC Laptop project? Contact them and perhaps they will bundle demo MorphOS. If hardware exists and if MorphOS port to it I should buy the laptop and register MorphOS on new laptop! :-D
    :-) I Support Quark Microkernel. :-D

    I would say so, yes. In other news, Servergy has reduced the cost of its P4080-based CTS-1000 from 15,000 USD to 1000 USD some months ago:

    T1042-based Django board suggested 1½ months ago:

    introduction article
    block diagram
    schematics

    I'm not sure about the validity of your cost estimation, though.
