Chumby developer building open source laptop

Maybe this is the antidote to the UEFI secure boot fiasco caused by MS:

Andrew 'bunnie' Huang has announced he is planning to build a DIY laptop from openly documented hardware in an effort currently codenamed "Novena". Open hardware means that there are no licensing fees for circuit diagrams and specifications. Whilst the open source movement has been well established in the software field for some years, open hardware is still something of a rarity in the PC component field. The project plans to make a system that works with both open source hardware and software.

We started the design in June, and last week I got my first prototype motherboards, hot off the SMT line. It’s booting linux, and I’m currently grinding through the validation of all the sub-components.
