    Thats GREAT news. I will gladly buy OPEN SOURCE HARDWARE. They just need to start making products like PCs, DVD players, TVs, Home Theaters, Cellphones, Vehicles, etc…
    I want everything Open Source.
    GOODBYE SOC INDUSTRY products.

    If worldwide consumer hardware spending is $600B, they have managed to capture at least .002% of the market. Total world domination is so close I can taste it! :)
