SubjectMotherboard design specifically for Linux
Hello;

I am interested in hearing what features people would
want to have on a motherboard/mainboard designed from the
ground up specifically for Linux.

In talks with local Linux users in have already received the
following suggestions/requests

1. OpenFirm Ware.
2. Geek port similar to the BeBox.
3. Common Hardware Reference Platform Compliant (CHRP)

Hopefully this week I will have a Web Page up
describing the effort of designing hardware all of which
will be released under a hardware equivalent of the GNU GPL.

The goal of the effort is to have a motherboard/design
which anyone can build/manufacturer and design changes are
feedback into future designs.

Once the motherboard/mainboard is underway additional
designs are planned.

1. Network Cards.
2. SCSI Cards.
3. Sound Cards.

I would also like to hear suggestions concerning what types
of cards should be designed.
