There seems to be an interesting collection of ex-Nokia, ex-Ericsson and Finnish tech company personnel though or is that like expecting an Australian soap opera that doesn't have the same actors from Neighbours in it?

Solu will change the way you think about computing. It is the first new desktop paradigm for 30 years, and is made in Finland - beautiful and innovative cloud-linked computer. You will never again need to worry about your hard drive, backing up files, or installing software - Solu does it all for you. Yet, Solu also works offline.It has been built around the core idea of collaboration. you can share applications and work co-cooperatively.Solu is a powerful pocket computer, made from wood, which can be used both as a portable device, or plugged into any screenHassle FreeThe usability of tradit ional computers has become crippled by maintenance, installation and backup requirements. Solu's advanced cloud-linked operating system ensures you never have to worry about these things again.Your content is automatically stored
The Kickstarter page will have more details in the following hours :

OS doesn't seem to be open source and everything is stored in the cloud with monthly subscriptions. Retailprice €449 with 6 months of subscription and now €299 on Kickstarter.
Not impressed.

I like what they have done. Would have definitely hoped more information in the kickstart page. There was a vague mentioning of Android app, but nothing else about compatibility or what the OS is based on. I guess Linux is a safe bet. Also nothing on what the fee will be.

If they are thinking that their main source of income is going to be those fees I am a bit skeptic of the funding model. Actually very skeptic.

But as always, I love it when someone is trying to really shake existing foundations and think differently. To take something we already have, have vision how it could work better and really go for it.

I am backing them up and ordering one.

The idea di per se is not bad and interesting, but sorry, I'm not a big fan of cloud-computing and -storage.

Edít: And what's the cost of subscription after the includet period?

How old are you, if you don't mind me asking? Because try as I might, I just cannot see anything shaking foundations:
  • A small, cube-shaped computer? Tick, seen dozens of those.
  • A thin client with no storage and all data in the "cloud"? Yawn. Back in the 1970s, those were called "terminals" connected to a "mainframe". In 1990s, they were called "network computers". Nowadays, the same idea is back again. Nothing is new, only the name.
  • A new company coming up with a lot of hype and hardly any details? Yeah, right, I haven't seen that one before!

So, please, pray tell me. What is so foundations-shaking about yet another one?
