These use the mini atx (mini itx?) main boards (really small - otherwise it might not work). They use boxes not normally associated with computers (ie; bread box, cigar box/humidor, etc). They are really cool (IMHO - ).

There was some discussion at http://groups.yaho.com/group/ecomstation on wether or not there are drivers for OS/2-eCS for this board. I posted it here (and other OS/2-eCS sites) since I thought the 'boxes' are truly unique and are made by those who 'thought outside the box' (a change from all those gray or black boxes one associates with computers).

It would be interesting to find a main board that is (or almost) that size that works with OS/2-eCS.

Saw one machine from the local electronic store that's using that board. The machine + board is only a little over a hundred dollars. Simply add memory and hard drive and off you go.

May be .....

I posted these links/urls to show what a creative person can do when they 'think outside the box' and not just to see if it can work with OS/2-eCS. I might - eventually - try one or two of them or create something on my own of my own design using a small board or a regular board (depending on what I buy and seeing if it would work with something other than a regular computer case [ie; like a water bottle used by the water coolers, or some creative design using some form of plastic, etc]).
