Disney Research has demonstrated an LED-to-LED “Linux Light Bulb” networking technology that would let toys communicate with each other, thereby bringing us one step closer to the reality of Disney/Pixar's Toy Story. Instead of lip-syncing to the voice of Tom Hanks, however, Woody would argue with Buzz Lightyear with a flash of his eyes.
First let me admit I am new to Linux after getting very interested in a privacy class I'm in that we use Linux in. I am interested in building a Linux server for my home. I plan to use it as a web server to host a simple website or two and a media server.
I am looking to spend 250 (less if possible) and want to assemble myself. Small form factor is important to me but if that explodes budget a larger box is not a deal breaker.
Can anyone recommend some components from newegg?
