Picotux – The Smallest Linux Computer in The World

Say hello to the smallest Linux computer in
the world
. It’s called the "Picotux 100", and it’s only slightly larger
(35mm×19mm×19mm) than an RJ45 connector.

 Inside, there is an ARM7 CPU at 55 MHz running uClinux kernel 2.4.27 and
Busybox 1.0. Two communication interfaces are provided, 10/100 Mbit half/full
duplex Ethernet and a serial port with up to 230.400 baud. Five additional lines
can be used for either general input/output or serial handshaking..

Well if I had one, I don’t know what I would do with it. But I really NEED
one. You see there is something about miniaturized Anything that has a strange
appeal to us Geeks.

 Is it because its concealable? Maybe it’s because you can pack more gadgets
into the minimal space we have in our dark caves? Who knows? I don’t know. So
don’t ask me. Just buy me what I want alright? Good.
