Linux

When Shuttle unveiled its low-cost kPC desktop at CES in January, word was that the machine would come pre-loaded with a copy of the popular Ubuntu Linux operating system. However, Shuttle has now put out a press release to say it has settled on a different distribution.

Shuttle says it has selected the little-known Foresight Linux to complement its affordable small-form-factor machine. Like Ubuntu, Foresight comes pre-loaded with a host of popular open-source software.
