Sounds great. Please post any/all info you get.
Maybe we could get a discount for just one of the motherboard designs.
Or promise to donate the linux port and then they could sell the motherboard
design+linux for 5k.
The key would be getting enough people so that we could split the 5k enough
I'd love to get a hold of a mips 4k board cheap. Any ideas on 4400 chip
I'd suspect we can't afford more then a mips 4k.
