F/Red: Fedora/Red Hat Electric Devices

Ok, this idea woke me up:

I think Fedora/Red Hat could get into the device realm. Who would buy a Fedora/Red Hat tailored laptop? Imagine that? Or maybe an audio player? Or a phone?

Raw Ideas

Laptops and PCs

  • Upgradeable hardware.
  • A native GNU & Linux keyboard. I dislike the windows logo on my keyboard.
  • 100% compatible and optimized hardware.
  • Fedora Art on it.
  • Linux native keys on the keyboard.

Audio Player

  • Plays open formats (ogg, webm, flac, etc)
  • Upgradable (hdd, memory, processor, etc)
  • Sync all (contacts, pictures, movies, music, etc)
  • Share music (streaming, p2p, etc)
  • Creative Commons Friendly (jamendo,, etc)


  • Android and/or something tailored for it?
  • SIP clients


  • Open formats
  • shareable
  • syncable


  • Web enabled
  • Upgradeable (hardware and software)
  • Open Formats

I like the idea of generating an open hardware specification for these and some conceptual art. If you're interested, please, lend me a hand. The idea rocks... to me at least ;)
