Ok you got me to sign up for eschoolnews. Don't get your knickers in a 
twist over this just yet. The screen, RAM and a chip from a commercial 
vendor like AMD, will be very difficult to put together for $90. I 
don't think you guys would be too happy with the $185. desktop they are 
already hawking in Asia. Plus I think that anything they come up with 
will be targeted for offshore, will be REALLY REALLY low end and will 
cost more here (remember we are a rich country). Oh, it won't happen 
for a few years either. However, this is nothing but good news and even 
though I'm a Mac guy I'm pro open source and this will really send 
Micro$oft for a loop.cheers,
Ed Crelin
