Raspberry Pi

A Raspberry Pi setup next to an SD card, common storage media for the miniature computer.
A GNU Linux Box for $25!

The Raspberry Pi is a credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard. It’s a capable little PC which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also plays high-definition video. The Pi measures 85.60mm x 53.98mm x 17mm, with a little overlap for the SD card and connectors which project over the edges. It weighs 45g. Fedora, Debian and ArchLinux will be supported from the start. They hope to see support from other distros (i.e. Ubuntu) later. The Model A will cost $25 and the Model B $35 (includes an additional USB port and ethernet).  Check out the latest on Raspberry at their website.
