To me, it is like Ford releasing the blue prints to the Model T. There is also an open source DOS that is more advanced - IIRC - called FreeDOS.

Open Office is a better version of Word, IMO.

This is one tiny computer.  8) It indicates that one can run Linux on it. I wonder if it can run other operating systems? It indicates it is for wearable computers. I think it could be one very tiny server.

I think one could make an even smaller server than the previous record holder.

I noticed that Mensys was selling the Linux mascot penguin. I was wondering if there was an interest in an eCS plush mascot.  8)

It has an Intel processor and one can get the barebones version. The price seems reasonable. Can one install eCS on it?

It is nice to be able to get a computer without having to pay for an operating system one is not planning to use.
