Ah, but might I remind you that open source hardware is how computers *used* to be shipped. The first computer I ever bought myself was an Apple ][+ and had with it all documentation of the hardware schematics on how it was built, what chips were used and how they were connected. Not only was it useful, but it was incredibly educational, particularly for a then 13 year old boy.

I had the same experience!

Great point.

Since i am not old enough - ;) - to remember those computers, and my only memories are from closed and made to monopolize machines, this news seems to be another great step towards a really open economy, where any developer would compete to gain us, consumers, instead of compete to gain governments or institutions favour, like what's happening today in Chile (for spanish speaking people, http://sss.cl/noalacuerdoM-G/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=12&Itemid=29 )
