Facebook demonstrated the hardware servers that power their massive Application. By launching Open Compute Project, Facebook shared the hardware specifications to public to get : Feedback, as well as adapt, & innovate. This is a good step. What they did is a very good step towards hard-ware open sourcing. It is true that Intel-based mother board specifications are open for usage which many OEM manufacturers follow and many individuals use for custom build desktops. However, this step is innovative and encouraging. Now, if you want to build your own data center, you have a blue print!
I hope it sets a trend. Any one going to open Tablet’s hardware specifications?
