Open Hardware: Revolutionising Linux

Filed under
Hardware

The first project I would like to talk about is OpenOEM, which aims to build and sell a line of computers consisting entirely of “Open Hardware” - that is, hardware whose documentation is under an Open Source licence, allowing the public to attempt to build upon its specifications and build their own version of the hardware, if they wish.

Mission Statement

To build the best Open Computer that combines power, simplicity and elegance by creating new Open Source Hardware and Software or by leveraging existing Open Source Technologies.

What’s so great about this? After all, a computer is a computer - who cares whether the underlying components that make it work are open or not?

Full Story.
