Submission + - $100 Linux wall-wart launches (

nerdyH writes: A $100 Linux wall wart could do to servers what netbooks did to notebooks. With the Marvell ShevaPlug, you get a completely open (hardware and software) Linux server resembling a typical wall-wart power adapter, but running Linux on a 1.2GHz CPU, with 512MB of RAM, and 512MB of Flash. I/O includes USB 2.0, gigabit Ethernet, while expansion is provided via an SDIO slot. The power draw is a nighlight-like 5 Watts. Marvell says it plans to give Linux developers everything they need to deliver "disruptive" services on the device. Thus the grid becomes the 'Net.
