The Little Box That Could

Tuesday, June 5, 2007

I just read about the $99 PC (Gizmodo article here:
http://gizmodo.com/gadgets/exclusive-hands_on/22-things-to-know-about-the-99-zonbu-linux-pc-262952.php).
With the right mix of hardware and open source software, cheap PCs for
everyone can become a reality. And to boot, it was designed with ease
of use in mind so even non-geeks wouldn't be apprehensive about using
linux. The PC connects you to the internet with minimal fuss. It saves
on electricity by using a low-power chip and a Compact Flash card for
storage (in lieu of a hard drive that needs more power to spin its
disks), so it "green". Its all pluses as far as I am concerned. I'm
looking forward to this piece of technology. I hope they'll market
this outside the US or at least make it available (ship it)
internationally. Check it out.
