Re: New hardware revision?

Don't Lose faith so soon! The word needs to be spread around enough.Also be aware of two things 1)This is a retro PC most people aren't nostalgic about it so its a niche audience to begin with 2)Open source projects don't really gain speed until something unique happens or a completed V1.0.0 is out ...
