Hi Mario, One of the exciting things happening on the hardware-front that has 
a very clear Linux dimension is the Simputer Project 
For those who might have not encountered it yet, it's a project undertaken by 
enthusiasts of the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore to build a sub-200$ 
computing device. The goal is to make computing affordable to the average 
villager. And why not! 
People like you have a great deal to contribute! This project is based on 
Linux software, and its aim of keeping its designs CopyLeft, in effect, take 
the Linux spirit into the hardware field too. Check it out... FN
