SubjectRe: [OT] Crazy idea: Design open-source graphics chip

Uh, the most common platform on which Linux is run?

Important point: unless the sales volumes of this card exceed a certain
point, the project is pointless.

The volumes in, say, the Sun market are so low that you'd can't get
decent a console graphics card for under $300.

But the Sun/Solaris market doesn't care about open source. So why bother?
