$99 Linux stick turns any HDMI display into a virtual desktop

Filed under

Hard on the heels of the news that Dell's “Project Ophelia” thumb PC is expected to ship this summer, thin client vendor Devon IT on Tuesday rolled out a similar contender of its own called the Ceptor.

Like Dell's device, the $99 Ceptor is designed to plug into any HDMI-compatible display or monitor. Slightly larger than a USB memory stick, the multimedia-capable unit can then transform such a device into a “zero client” virtual desktop.

Whereas Dell's device uses Linux-based Android, however, the Ceptor uses Devon IT’s own Linux-based zero-client operating system, known as ZeTOS, to let users access their virtual desktops.
