Congratz on being slashdotted

Just a slightly dissenting note - the slashdot comments about the CPU
were spot-on : you don't get the full blueprints to allow mass
production by a competitor. As it is, it's just as little better than
the OLPC, but still a nice step forward.

A fully OSS device, even less powered, would IMHO be more attractive
to many people. That means being able to provide the VHDL and allow
evolution and resale - à la FSF software freedoms. I'm no specialist
on CPU, but IIRC the SPARC is just that. Another possibility would be
with FPGA.

The NN is a very nice first step. Not including wifi was a tough
decision, but the right move. Betting on HomeRF, or anything that is
not patent encumbered  is very appealing.

I am eagerly waiting for the next iterations from Qi Hardware,
