[News] Linux Powers Fist-sized Computer

Hash: SHA1

Cool: smallest Linux desktop PC, smaller than an apple (fruit)

| Measuring at just 2 x 2 x 2.2 inches this is 
| the smallest Desktop PC. And it's running 
| Linux, one more point for Linux coolness.



Plat'Home Announces OpenBlockS 600 - Smaller Faster Greener Linux Server

,----[ Quote ]
| -Plat'Home, Japan's Linux pioneer, today announced the OpenBlockS
| 600, the new model of the OpenBlockS series, a line of compact
| and durable Linux micro servers. It packs a 600 MHz CPU, a full
| Gigabyte of RAM and Gigabit Ethernet in a palm-sized box. Heat
| and dust resistant and just 5 x 3 x 1 inches, it fits and
| survives in any small corner. And at a mere 8 W power
| consumption, it's friendly to both wallet and environment.


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.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
