"Green" integrated PC runs Linux

Filed under
Hardware

Tangent announced a fanless, Linux-compatible PC that runs on 24 Watts and tucks neatly behind its 17-inch display. The Evergreen 17 is available with a 1GHz Via Eden, 2GB SDRAM, and either a 160GB hard drive or a 64GB solid-state drive (SSD), says Tangent.

Aimed at helping schools and government organizations achieve Green Energy Reduction Initiatives, the Evergreen 17 runs on an undisclosed version of Linux, or can be loaded with Windows XP (Pro or Embedded). The Via Eden is accompanied by up to 2GB DDR2 SDRAM, says Tangent. An S3 Mirage video processor drives the 17-inch flat-panel display, which offers 1280 x 1024 resolution. Touchscreen capability is optional.

The Evergreen 17 ships standard with either a 160GB hard drive or an SSD drive that comes in gigabyte increments of 1, 2, 4, 16, 32, or 64GB. A fanless configuration that uses the SSD drive dramatically reduces the cost of maintenance, claims the company. Tangent also offers a DVD/CD-RW combo, as well as an optional CF drive.

Richard Stallman and Phil Zimmerman underline key concerns with tech sector

Two of technology's most pioneering developers have strongly criticised the current state of the industry, warning that the right to encryption is doomed and that users are exploited by the software that they use. Open sourcerer Richard Stallman has painted a very bleak picture of today's technology and communications environment, describing proprietary software as "malware". Stallman, the founder of the free software movement, perhaps not surprisingly has a very jaundiced view of proprietary software, and of Microsoft Windows especially. Read more
