Media production to comunicate the project / Re: Let's vote for the name

So you want to add "AccuBook".
Power or PPC are not string required inside the name.  :)

AccuBook as a name came to my mind...

Accurate and Book sized?

Power or PPC in the name isn't all that required is it?

Note that manufacturers say they require the closed source firmware to comply with regulations.

That may be an excuse in part and part of the job is also done by the driver but it is something to take into account.

I wonder how much out of spec the cards could go with custom firmware.

How will you get certifications for such opensource hardware?

If it's really too much trouble, we might indeed better opt for a soldered in GPU. Then of course, we'll have to decide on a GPU. I don't think we'd have the resources to offer multiple configurations.

How about making a mainboard with a MXM slot and a default MXM card?

You can also test other MXM cards available to verify that the slot works as intended.

Then you get working device with a card of your choice and people are free to swap in a different card.

Or you can start shipping a different model with a different card later.

Doesn't the GNOME Web browser work perfectly on PowerPC? It has support for Firefox Sync and is based on Webkit.

The engine might ported be but have you seen anybody building the browser even for ppc4le?
