Their problem was that they gave the developemt of the hardware to a company which has not much experience and staff to do that. They should have asked to Asus, Gigabyte, MSI, Foxconn, Pegaus and so. That's their daily business. You give then the specs you want, you gurantee them that you take a hundred of thousands of these borads and they'll do. From my own experience, I used to work for such a boardmaker for allmost 10 years, more than 15 years ago , I know that they are doing such a design within 2 monthes until first (mostly) working prototype. They have to do that that fast, because, otherwise the chipset and processor which is the base for the mainboard is already phased out for new model with better spec, better performance, more features, etc. That company arround Rob Wyatt was ways too slow for that job. I think the complete thing just fails.
Power without the Price. It's not a bug. It's a feature. _/|\_ATARI
