But note that all that is not open source hardware (as mentioned above). Also I'm not getting the point in buying such hardware -- there is some linux distribution preinstalled, but that's it I guess. Or am I missing something?
The hardware might be chosen so that it works well with linux. If you're lucky. Other than that, I find the term open source hardware was probably misused in the first place in this thread, as the topic as I understood it was "hardware for use with free software".
If you want open source hardware, I recommend looking at
- the EOMA68 project
- upcoming Talos Workstation by Raptor Engineering
- maybe devices supported by libreboot
Whoever makes a start with the wiki page will likely refer to this thread as a reference.
