Since its Peg2 and not rohs-compliant, I'd estimate the price of your ODW somewhere around 50000 usd  :crazy:  :crazy:  :crazy:  :crazy:  :crazy:

Open Desktop Workstation

The Open Desktop Workstation, or ODW, is a standardized version of the Pegasos II. It was the first open source based PowerPC computer and gave PowerPC a host/target development environment. Genesi have released the complete specification (design and component listing) free of charge. The ODW-derived Home Media Center won the Best in Show award at the Freescale Technology Forum in 2005[1], have a ATI certification[2] and a "Ready for IBM Technology" certification.



Link to Spec.

If it's doable I wonder how much it'd cost; only option for a dual-boot scenario.



Why bother to re-create old hardware?
Why not simply support existing and better hardware at a much lower price?
All the best,

Dandy
