Hardware: Open Graphics Project Status Update

It's been a while since the last update on the Open Graphics Project, so I've put together this article to fill in the community on what's been happening, what's going to happen, and how we can make what happens happen faster.

Although we're not too far off the Gantt chart, it is nevertheless frustrating for us to find the time to work on some things. For a hardware project that's being done in our spare time, though, things are going rather well, and there's a very strong likelihood that you'll see real hardware for sale on our web site before the year is out. Especially if we can get help on a few things from the community. Read on for details.
