[Review] OpenBlock S600, a powerful server in the palm of your hand

,----[ Quote ]
| Entirely made in Japan, the OpenBlockS600 
| may not feature the most exciting design 
| ever made to mankind, but who would argue 
| that design for this kind of a product is 
| important? After all, what we want and 
| need here is something extremely reliable, 
| easy to handle and rock solidâ And believe 
| me, the OpenBlockS600 is ALL of those in 
| one tiny white aluminum box.


InfoWorld review: Desktop virtualization for Windows and Linux heats up

,----[ Quote ]
| Desktop virtualization is one of those 
| technologies that confound the experts. 
| Just when you think you've got it figured 
| out, along comes some interloping 
| development to upset the apple cart. Most 
| recently, that role has fallen to Sun's 
| VirtualBox, the plucky open source VM 
| solution that's quickly gobbling up the 
| general-purpose desktop virtualization 
| space left vacant by Microsoft and VMware. 
| Users from the three major platforms -- 
| Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux -- are 
| flocking to VirtualBox for its 
| scalability, robust networking, and 
| bargain price point (it's free).

The OpenBlockS 600 is a Linux server that fits in your palm

| Forget the netbook or the net-top PC: How about a net-
| server?
| A Japanese vendor is touting a lilliputian Linux Web
| server that weighs 8 ounces and consumes just 8 watts.


PlatâHome launches palm-sized Linux server

| Plat'Home has launched a new model of its OpenBlockS

| ethernet in a palm-sized box.



Open source in Japan: Q&A with the President of Plat'Home

,----[ Quote ]
|     ...ultimately, I believe the opportunity for Linux expanding into a
|     wide range of devices, including, of course, entertainment devices like
|     set-top boxes, cell phones, and other mobile devices, radically dwarfs
|     the opportunity for broadcast entertainment. Even today, when you search,
|     when you make a phone call, when you do online banking, you're using
|     Linux. And it's only the beginning. I wanted to be a part of that.
| Asay: Plat'Home started selling Linux in Japan in 1993. That's really early
| days. Why Linux?
|     Suzuki: Linux is powerful, in a lot of ways, especially for what it
|     doesn't do. Let me explain. It's possible to deliver more computing
|     power -- that is, more functionality and more stability -- into a wide
|     range of devices, especially small ones. Its small footprint was very
|     appealing. This was already apparent even from early on. Basically, we
|     saw it as having the potential to get very sophisticated software into
|     the hands of users. No compromises.


OpenMicroServer: Tiny Footprint Linux Server

,----[ Quote ]
| I saw an announcement that the OpenMicroServer (OMS) is now available in the
| U.S. It has been produced in Japan for some time but has just been made
| available domestically. Whatâs cool about it is that it is small  and can be
| powered from an Ethernet port. It reminded me of the BlackDog USB Server that
| made a splash a couple years back.The little OMS only measures 9â x 4â x 1.3â
| Itâs officially supported for Debian (Etch) and NetBSD. PlatâHome also
| maintains their own OS SSD/Linux which is a combination of Linux and BSD
| code. I love little gadgets like these and try to figure out some innovative
| ways to use them.
