SEH Print Server Serves Up Energy Savings

,----[ Quote ]
| SEH Technology's Linux-based ISD300 print server runs on 12 watts of power, 
| as opposed to the 100 watts of comparable models. 



Fit PC runs Linux and draws only 5W of power

| There are power efficient computers and then there are power efficient 
| computers.  Enter the Fit PC, a small, self-contained, fanless computer that 
| draws 3W to 5W when it is on.  


Linutop Mini Linux PC Reviewed - Damn Small Linux Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| The Linutop is a small Linux PC. Of course, if you think the Mac Mini is 
| small, then perhaps the words, incredibly miniscule are closer to the mark. 
| Running a customised version of xubuntu Linux, this little box could replace 
| your desktop for most common tasks, including what you're doing right now. 
| And if this wasn't impressive enough in a box slightly larger than a Nintendo 
| DS, the Linutop does it all drawing a maximum of 5 watts - That's less than 
| an energy saver light bulb!  


Tiny PC sips power, runs Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Compulab has introduced a fanless PC, roughly the size of a paperback book, 
| that consumes a mere 3 to 5 watts of power. The "fit-PC" comes with Linux 
| preinstalled, and is intended to fit where conventional PCs won't, according 
| to the Haifa, Israel-based company.   


Linux net PC prototype gains favorable review

,----[ Quote ]
| PC Magazine reviewer Patrick Norton likes the Zonbox's low power requirements 
| and complement of pre-loaded software, which includes Skype, the Banshee 
| music jukebox, OpenOffice, and Firefox. YouTube video playback and mp3 
| ripping are less than perfect, he reports. However, the Zonbox uses only
| 11  Watts to play DVDs (external USB DVD player required). It can output to a 
| ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
| 720p high-definition TV with "no problems," Norton found.      


Tiny 2-Watt Linux system packs a light-weight Java runtime environment

,----[ Quote ]
| The Gateway Express is based on the company's SA2410 Medallion CPU
| module, draws under two watts, and is available with IBM WebSphere
| development tools.


Windows, Linux vie for honours

,----[ Quote ]
| Projects include the "tickles kernel" which enables the processor to sleep 
| between tasks and better power management to USB peripherals.

| That lightness had also allowed Linux to become a strong player in the 
| embedded market, where energy efficiency was critical to success, Mr King 
| said.  


Linux, Windows duke it out over energy efficiency

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux appears to have an advantage at the moment: Companies are becoming 
| increasingly open to adopting the platform both in the server room and on the 
| desktop. Big-name vendors like IBM, HP, and Novell are giving the penguin a 
| push in the datacenter, framing it as a flexible and energy-efficient 
| platform. The fact that Linux offers greater virtualization opportunities 
| than Windows (a sentiment recently expressed by the VMWare CTO Mendel 
| Rosenblum) only strengthens the platform's green standing.      


GNU/Linux is the most power-efficient OS on Intel hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| According to a keynote given at OSCON, Intel's PowerTOP application has 
| allowed developers to get a close-up view of what is sucking power in a 
| GNU/Linux system. Apparently they've gotten so much feedback and patches that 
| they've been able to extend battery life by an hour since the first release, 
| making GNU/Linux the best OS for power saving.    


Report: Linux, open source greener than Windows

,----[ Quote ]
| A new report from the U.K. Office of Government Commerce about Open
| Source Software Trials in Government, has found that servers running
| Linux could combat the rising problem of e-waste because they last
| up to twice as long as machines running Windows.
