Ran across this today on PC World Website

http://www.pcworld.com/businesscenter/article/259123/two_more_tiny_linux_pcs_each_cost_less_than_100.html

Device is supposed to run Ubuntu, Fedora and Puppy Linux, plus others

Looks interesting

Thanks for this link. I would need one such that has
connection to standard USB or an USB HUB where I can
connect USB Keyboard, USB Mouse and USB Flash memory

That way one could use it as a low power silent Desktop.
I lamost have this now hiding the noisy Acer D255 behind the TV screen
Which does have HDMI if I need that but the D255 does not have HDMI out though. Smile

Sad that the MiniX only had 512MB instead of 1GB
I wonder about those that have Android. One would need to jailbreak them
for to install Puppy on them.

Seems to be something that many hardware companies look into?
http://www.cnx-software.com/2012/03/08/valueplus-tizzbird-stick-n1-android-ics-hdmiusb-dongle-media-player/

Tizzbird Stick N1: Android 4.0 HDMI/USB Media Player Dongle
This device is a media player in a small form factor HDMI / USB stick
similar to what we have previously seen with the Roku Streaming Stick,
Always Innovating HDMI Dongle Media Player and FXI Tech Cotton Candy.

The Tizzbird N1 is powered by Telechips 8925 ARM Cortex A5 processor (TCC8925C) clocked at 800 Mhz with 4 GB NAND Flash and runs Android 4.0 (ICS). The device features an HDMI port, a mini USB port for power, a USB port to connect external mass-storage devices such as a USB hard drive, a microSD card slot and an IR sensor. The device also has built-in Wifi 802.11n for network connectivity.

The way it works is you plug the stick into the HDMI port of your TV and use a short USB cable to connect the mini USB port to the USB port of the TV transforming your “dumb” TV into a smart TV.

Sorry such big quote could not decide on what to keep or what to scrap.

You get the picture. Hope I am correct. It should be possible to use
linux on it but I am not sure. Me being a Swede and living here too
are happy that there are a Swedish company that has imported it so
I should be able to buy one rather easily within some weeks or so???

I will try to read up on if it really an boot linux apart from the
built in Android that it has now.

Crazy suggestion. Should we not have a Puppy Android something.
Android Puppy being root and so on. That way one did not have to
... Never mind just me being silly. Android is owned by Google so
they would never allow such open GPL whatever is needed.

Being Crazy has its privileges

How can it be done?

1. Android is returning to java compliance and openness
2, Android+Java SFS
3. Download and run apps

. . . there may be a little more to it than that Rolling Eyes
However in essence it is both feasible and I would suggest necessary in the long term.

I trust you are more of an Optimist
while I am a natural born Pessimist. Smile

Google would not allow such things.
They need our money.

But what about all these guys that do the jaybreaking
or what it is named. Cyanogen or similar names.

They do other ROM that one can download and
that allow some personal projects to be done?

But for how long does such survive? Would not Google
see to it that they change the code often enough to make
it too much of a hassle to try to jay oneself into the code Smile

They get our money. Google makes money from adverts
in semi-free apps.

and . . . now . . . back to small motherboards
I am more interested in small price, almost disposable . . .
Intels NUC just ain't gonna cut it. Nice though.

I guess the 40GB mSATA SSD makes it very expensive.

What do you know about the differences between A5 and A8 and A10?
Is RPi an A10 and the TiZZ is A5 to get a low price? MK802 is A8?

I should look it all up and not rely on my extremely bad memory.

All of these have Debian code that work on it but does that mean that
every such A5 A8 and A10 is different in code and you need three
different puppies for to work on them?
