Our "software workgroup" like to collaborate with Debian powerpc team!
Please give us some details our we can collaborate.  ;)

The NXP e6500 core, the core of our Notebook, can run in big endian mode with Altivec acceleration and in little endian mode without Altivec acceleration.


Notebook chassis / Re: What about 3D printed chassis

I think the "parametric design project" is a very interesting project and we are already in contact with Luke Leighton that like our project.
In the near future I believe that we will collaborate together.
Now we are in the stage of making an agreement with a notebook producer to provide us its notebook chassis,battery,lcd,etc...
Even Tesla Motor for the its first electric car have used a Lotus "Chassis" :D

Even if we are not a Company, we are a R&D volunteer association :"we define ourselves as a Solidarity/Ethical/Passion driven community. We promote a Positive and Humane relationship between collaborators, and advocate giving people a choice to run GNU/Linux on different hardware platforms."

Is there any current activity on social media like Facebook or twitter???

  • OpenShot 2.X(a must)
  • Kdenlive 15.2.X(a must)
  • PiTiVi
  • Shotcut
  • Flowblade
  • LiVES
  • LightWorks

Is there any new date when i can buy a laptop?
We need to collect the money to start design and prototypes before September 2016, the design start on September 2016 , so at beginning of 2017 we will have the Open Hardware design and the prototypes... ( if people found the Open Hardware project ) :D

Very good suggestion!
Soon we will send you the survey for the collaboration with our team.  ;)

Hi Carlos,
I'm, as individual member, already in OPF.
I can see that Nvidia and ATI are disclosing their-self to Open Source.
Join OPF as PowerPC-Notebook project" could be a good suggestion to discuss with the core team of our project, thanks for the suggestion.
Genesi as new PowerPC plans? really? where have you read this? please share the links about.

many thanks!

Do you are already active with our projects?
In case please evaluate to activate yourself.

The e6500 core (T2080 / T4080) is a good choice.
But after the deal with NXP, I am not confident, if NXP will stick with future development of the PowerPC. I'm hoping it.

On the other hand, a POWER8 (or a striped down version of it) would be also a good choice, maybe a better one (for future notebooks). A 12-core POWER8 has a TDP of 190W at 3.1GHz. A 4-core 2.5GHz POWER8 should fit in a notebook, maybe?

Okay, a POWER8 is too expensive and the temperature is maybe also too high.

But for example, a striped down version of the POWER6 (POWER6UL) was in IBMs drawer.

This was only a thought, don't hit me, please.
DDR3 and USB3 is also a good choice. Maybe Thunderbolt is also possible?
Because of such possibilities: :-)

The notebook should be as small as possible. My personal preference.
The case should designed in a way that the MXM, SSD or RAM is easy to change / upgrade.

About the MXM graphic card. My personal preference is ATi.

About nVidia and Linux PowerPC driver:
nVidia has joined the OpenPOWER Foundation:

Maybe in the future we will get good Linux drivers from nVidia?
Maybe it does make sense to join the OPF as well? As "PowerPC-Notebook project"?

This all are only thoughts. Input are welcome :-)

Edit: Ah, also has Genesi plans for a PowerPC device. Maybe it does make sense to do a collaboration with Genesi? It's because we are only a few PowerPC enthusiastic, we should all stay together.

I will also contact a few PowerPC fans, maybe they would like to join the team.

Dear friends,
This is a CALL for everyone that like to manage to take care about the Communication and Relationship of our project to the rest of the World.

If you like to improve this project regarding Communication and Relationship you can contact us.

Many Thanks!   :D

I was convinced that I had already corrected the link ... now I finally have corrected it. ::)

General Discussion / Re: Release and Cost!

As soon as possible we will update everybody about that informations.

In any case depends from us, all together, more people we could inform about this project and we will have more possibilities to accelerate the development.

Many Thanks!

news from the team / New specifications and development status
« on: May 31, 2015, 11:19:19 PM »
The manufacturer is going forward and defines the notebook specifications. So we are reaching step by step the next milestone.

Finally we give publically the specification of the processor family that our notebook will adopt!
 It will use a Freescale processor based on a e6500 64-bit Power Architecture┬« Core Technology that includes Altivec technology with 16 GFLOPS per core.

The notebook will have 2 memory slots for DDR3L RAM (low power).
The notebook will have USB2 and USB3 ports.
