Hardware : : The Freescale/Genesi Open Desktop Workstation - does it rule

PPCNUX looked inside the machine that not only comes with Linux but also MorphOS preinstalled on HD. If you cannot read German, the 14 pictures might still interest you. For dare-devils there remains an infamous babelfish translation.

    Looks like a very good "Balanced" review. I don't read much german, but from what I didn't Understand the Babelfish translation helped some...

    I wondered How they fit a PegII + peripherals in that small case? Now I know!!

    Nice review...

    Looks like everyone got an ODW but me.. which is pretty ironic I'd say.

    Anyway....

    There are some more "hidden" features in the OF.. I suggest anyone wanting to explore it buy a manual on the FORTH programming language...
