Tb estou interessado, mas neste momento alguém me matava por gastar
quase 100€ nisso. Agora... 128MB??? irk...

Linux does install. I have Xubuntu running on mine. See
http://jsco.org/dectop/ for details.

* one of the cheapest x86 boxes out there
* easily expanded with cheap parts (3.5" IDE drive, 200-pin SODIMM DDR
* RAM)
* single 12VDC power supply and low power requirements make for a
* flexible platform
* fanless; the only noise is the HDD

* still kind of slow (366 MHz processor)
* included hard disk appears to have a locked boot sector
* appears to be no BIOS access
* USB 1.1 makes it a poor choice for a NAS device

Basically, it looks like this computer fits the niche it was designed
for: a cheap, simple internet access point. With Xubuntu, Firefox, and
OpenOffice, it gets the job done. Don't expect much more than that and
you won't be disappointed.
