Shuttle XS29f: Linux Looks Great in Green

“Probably the single most important question to skeptical DIYers
is “How hard is it to assemble and get the OS installed”? Rest
assured, the assembly part couldn’t be easier, and with Linux as
the OS it just works. Two thumb screws expose the inside of the
box, and all you really have to add is memory. You’ll probably want
to add a hard drive if you plan on using it as a desktop

“At the heart of the Shuttle XS29f is the Nano, Via’s first
64-bit processor in their x86 line. The Nano delivers high-end
performance with low power requirements. Two memory slots support
up to 4 GB of memory to go along with the Via 1.3 GHz Nano
processor. It uses DDR2 memory, which is pretty inexpensive right
now. Two internal SATA-II connectors support internal storage.”
