It began in 2006 as a modest idea to provide a low-cost educational computer for students to tinker with. Now the $25 Linux-based single-board computer is the basis for all kinds of gadgets.
geeky-gadgets.com: Rikomagic UK is gearing up to launch a new line of mini PCs in the form of the Minix Linux ARM Mini PCs that will take the form of the MK802 III LE (Linux Edition) and MK802 IV LE
livemint.com: It’s a single circuit board the size of a credit card with no screen or keyboard, a far cry from the smooth tablets that dominate the technology market. But the world’s cheapest computer, costing just $25, has astonished its British creators by selling almost 1.5 million units in 18 months.
things-linux.blogspot: It was quite easy to assemble and get up and running. What actually took the longest was putting together the slick little case sold by Built To Spec.
mandrivachronicles.blogspot: How nostalgic! Today I powered on my wife's Asus Eee PC 901. That is a tiny 8.9 inch netbook that came with 1Gb RAM, 20Gb SSD, and Linux pre-installed. My wife kept it at her mother's house, but brought it back two weeks ago.
