Open PC launches Open PC

Open Sauce champion Open-PC has launched a new open PC, called the Open-PC and it's completely open, apparently.

The hardware, which we can't help thinking looks a little bit, well... 'tinny' is the word that comes to mind, is built entirely with components from manufacturers who provide complete technical specifications. Everything works with free drivers an no proprietary software is needed.

It comes pre-installed with a Linux/KCE operating system and is preconfigured out of the box.

Powered by an Atom N330 1.6GHz Dual Core Processor, the mini ITX box has an ASRock main board, and Intel GMA 950 Graphics, 3GB of RAM and a 250 watt power supply.

Free telephone and email support is included in the €350 price tag, €10 of which is donated to the KDE Project.

The final specs of the hardware were based on a number of public surveys of the Open Source community carried out by the company.

You'll be able to order one from Open-PC from the end of February.
