Honey, I Shrunk the PC!

July 19, 2007 at 10:24 pm 2 comments


PCs come in all shapes and sizes. The larger they are, the more performance they tend to offer, and that’s the metric that drives a market still ruled by Moore’s law and its myriad derivatives. There’s a certain appeal to small systems, however — especially if you go the DIY route, proving once again that even if small can’t quite run World of Warcraft, it sure can be beautiful.

Picotux doesn’t do sexy. Picotux doesn’t do games. Picotux doesn’t do much of anything. What picotux does do is be a truly minuscule computer, not much larger than the ethernet jack that brackets it. An inch long and only 19 mm wide and deep, the ARM-powered little winder has 8 MB of RAM, 100 Mbit ethernet and a 55-MHz CPU. It runs uClinux and makes a wonderful web server.
