Genesi is a new company that has deep roots in its
people who come from various segments of the computer
industry. Genesi has two core groups for operating system
development and electronics engineering that have worked
together to create an open hardware platform that provides
exciting possibilities for many markets.
Genesi's new hardware platform is called Pegasos. The
IBM/Motorola PowerPC(tm) family of processors was
selected to drive the Pegasos system. Genesi's

Open Firmware so that many operating systems can work
easily on the Pegasos platform.
To compliment the Pegasos and provide a complete solution,
Genesi has developed MorphOS - a preemptive multitasking
