+ - 100% Free software compatible PC launches-> 1 1

crimperman writes: The Open-PC project has announced that it's first PC is now available for 359 Euro. They claim the mini-ITX desktop machine is energy efficient, consumer ready, easy to upgrade and — significantly — uses only hardware which has free software drivers available.
