I wonder if AMD is profiting off of the sale of their processors in this project (they being an EVIL corporation which only grubs for money wherever they can, even off of the poor and distraught). Actually, I suspect ALL of the components are made by corporations, and all of them being inherently evil (ref: one of the other postings) they're all squeezing profit off of the poor of the world! Shouldn't this project be made 100% by volunteer hands, no corporations involved at all in order to eliminate profits (which is the source of evil in the world)?

Note: The basis of most postings in this thread is that Intel's product is bad because Intel is in this only for the profits due to the very fact they're a corporation. So given that, no corporations should thereby be used in either project, including the "$100" one. In other words, no commercial electronic parts may be used. They're all made by profit seeking corporations, just like Intel.

I couldn't agree more. There is so much "profit is bad" kind of talk here that it is sick. When these kids grow up and get jobs, hopefully the'll start to understand the value of earning a dollar and get with the program.
