Hi,

Just received this email from the linux-mips channel on vger.  I forward
this to the FNet list since I suspect that most people on this list
aren't subscribed on vger.

I'm not subscribed to the list, so use direct replys.  

I don't know if the Acer hardware is good or not, I saw a mention of it 
in a Linux/MIPS FAQ someplce and tried to track down some sales 
information from Acer.  (I'm building a collection of MIPS links on
http://www.linux.ncm.com/, if you have any places to add-- manufacturers, 
FTP sites, WWW sites.. send me email).

Acer's response back to my query was quick (which was nice) and 
encouraging.

If its good hardware, maybe it could be resurrected...

          Dear Simon:

          This product is no longer sold by Acer America so we have no
          plans to put information up on our web site at this time.
          If you receive inquiries regarding running Linux on this
          system however, please forward them to me and I'll get
          someone from the original team to reply.  If the demand is
          high enough, we may put some info online.

          Thanks,
          webmaster@acer.com  1/15

I'm looking for a URL to put on my Linux Developer's Resource web site for
MIPS processor platforms.. I saw a reference in a Linux/MIPS FAQ that
there was a Acer motherboard/machine that it was being ported to.  Do you
have a URL I can put to your site(s) that document your MIPS hardware.
