The PowerPC notebook for Linux from Power Progress Community is heading for release! The project is taking off and maybe Hyperion entertainment or the MorphOS team should take notice of this upcoming PowerPC notebook. The team behind this unique project will even consider the possibility of making the motherboard Open Source Hardware (OSH). They will publish all the CAD files, specifications and any other documentation in a way that could be usable. Of course they will share the source code too (firmware and drivers). Coming with a 64-bit architecture with a proper 32-bit subset, ISA 2.04/2.05/2.06 support multicore/multithreading, virtualization, hypervisor and Power Management. And the e6500 core includes a 16 GFLOPS AltiVec technology. For more information please visit www.powerpc-notebook.org
