Vote the name of the Motherboard of our PowerPC Notebook
« on: June 06, 2021, 07:35:30 PM »
In October 2020, we've started to ask the community to suggest names for our motherboard. The suggestions were collected from our powerprogress forum and even from Twitter. We voted internally on these names to pick the best candidates for a public vote. So now you can vote on your favourite names!
Our desire is to collect around 1000 votes before decide the final name on the PCB.

OvertureIt’s commonly a term used in symphonies, so it really gives a feel of power and elegance, which are potential benefits of this project. It even gives you a whole registry of follow-up terms centered around music, if subsequent models are produced
