From IBM's website

"The Open Desktop Workstation is based upon the Genesi Pegasos, a CHRP based motherboard. Integrating selected Open Firmware and running multiple (15+) operating systems, the Workstation is an extremely efficient, very expandable hardware solution for personal and business computer requirements.

The Open Desktop Workstation is available as a turnkey, built to order solution with a number of configuration packages available, including multiple distributions of open-source Linux, and OpenBSD. Other options are available on request.

The combined reference designs and open standards give the Open Desktop Workstation the flexibility to unleash PowerPC onto the desktops of the workplace and the server racks of the small business. The desktop version allows the workplace to have a level of conformity between servers and office equipment reducing the total technology overhead. Providing a natural path of progression from user to system administration the desktop version can minimize outside training requirements. Rack mount versions provide the small business and educators with servers that not only perform, but perform silently, consuming less power, and with the reliability expected from PowerPC.

Running several distributions of Linux out of the box along with OpenBSD, the Open Desktop Workstation will be capable of running future Linux distributions by virtue of the open standards adopted by its design. Being customizable to particular needs, the Open Desktop Workstation may be used with its own closed source Operating System for enterprises that require it.

The Open Desktop Workstation, whether using closed or open source systems, is available in both "do it yourself" and as a complete turnkey system built to the specifications of many enterprises both large and small.
