project was announced at the recently-concluded Gran Canaria Desktop Summit as reported
by KDE.News. Open-pc is an effort to produce a free software based PC, with hardware supported by free drivers, as well as applications that are well-tested to work on the device. "The project was initiated in response to the lack of quality in the Free Software-based hardware solutions currently on the market. As many reviewers and end-users have stated, the pre-installed software used by hardware vendors generated a bad image for Free Software with potentially interested end-users. Much of the software was buggy and not widely tested and device drivers were often unstable, non-free or not available at all.
