I was just watching cspan and these profesors and scientist were talking about open source hardware and how to make it a reality.
The basic idea is you could buy the tools to build micro chips they were saying the tool you need to build these chips cost a couple of dollars.
And you would buy the materials to build these chips and you would use open source hardware schematics to build motherboards video cards etc etc basicly building a computer really from scratch and the that these profesors and scientest have been going around to diffearnt goverments looking for funding to start this.
MIT is playing a huge part in this new movement
Anyways here is some proof that it is really happening.
Wenn Sie Spaß meines Englisch mich Willensfuckingtötung Sie bilden.
ive heard of this specifically for a graphics card but thats it, hopefully this will further open source, but how good will the hardware be , ive also heard that mit is doing alot of various things to help with the furthering of opensource, now all we need is a opensource, linux based video game console
