maikl: "And I think it is not necessary to mention all the past mistakes of MD? You don't mention the Castle/Linux issue in any Iyonix article, do you?"

Advice: read thoroughly first, then post! But aside from such slap-downs, doesn't this underscore the need for small producers to use as much generic hardware as possible, even though they don't get to show off sexy new designs? Of course, the most extreme approach is just to use the most generic of hardware - the Intel-based PC - and put emulation on top.
