At LinuxDay in Milan this 25th October I will present the project “Open Source Linux PowerPC notebook” and I want to join together passionate peoples that want to make happen a new open source powerpc notebook will be produced soon. I believe with this project to meets the needs of a relatively small but vigorous community of enthusiasts.
My passion on innovation and for this project have already motivated a producer to start to design the mobo of this PowerPC Notebook.
To make it produced and designed near our needs your participation make the difference.
From 2010 other manufacturers have produced Arm netbooks, not gnu/linux based, like Toshiba ac 100 (with Android 2.x), Samsung Arm Chromebook ( with chrome os), so Genesi remain the unique arm based notebook producer that preinstalled Ubuntu gnu/linux os. Genesi had donated 55 efika mx smartbooks to Linaro.
Today from ours accredited sources we have the peak preview that before the summer will be ready a 15.6 notebook for gaming based on Freescale T2080 a new 64 bit powerpc 8 virtual cores processor based on four cores dual treated based on 6500 architecture clocked at 1.8Ghz.
I have a Toshiba C650D-109 ( original with Athlon II dual-core P320 2.10GHz) upgraded by myself with AMD Phenom II Quad-Core Mobile N950, with LinuxMint 12.
I had installed Linux Mint 12 two years ago, I had added, during this last two years, many third part repository to install many upgraded packages ( kdenlive, openshot,blender, etc..) , but now was time to upgrade everything.
