They're not just hungry for power - notice the driver support: VxWorks,
WindowsCE, Linux, etc. They're all full operating systems. There's a
reason they don't offer code for 8 or 12 bit microcontrollers - it
On the other had, for $99 you can get a full linux computer:
About $200 or so will get you a computer with enough peripherals and
attachment points to be useful. They need to work on their physical
mounting provisions (currently, there aren't any), but it's got
potential. Get one with a sound interface and you can theoretically do
linux soundmodem packet with it.
