Development Machines/Emulator

Tom Potts-3
I have heard that there may be troubles getting the initial number of
orders to get prices down to $100.
I would gladly pay over the odds for a 'development' machine/environment
on the understanding that everything I develop on/for it is under the
GPL and gratis, free etc.
I think there may be many others like me.

I think it would be a tragedy if this project fails because people are
'excluded' because they come from rich countries - it will need people
with previous computing experience, IMHO preferably from 'open source'  
to deliver. If machines turn up in the 'third world' first then we will
have proprietary software 'developed' for them before you can say boo
and training courses offered to lock users in to proprietary methods to
ensure the 'third world' stays there.
Please don't let that happen.
