Now, the OpenCores community is asking for donations to create a new ASIC with the openrisc cpu, ethernet, PCI, UART, USB and other peripherals. The goal is to be able to sell these ASICs at a low price to anyone who wants to build a cheap embedded system built completely on open source. The OpenRISC currently runs on linux 2.6.37 and has ports of gcc 4.5.1 among other things." Link to Original Source
