posted in LINUX, NEWS, PINNED NEWS, VIDEO | Posted by FireSword

This a uk charity project which aims to give access to everyone to computer programming, an ultra-low-cost computer, tiny for any students, even those who can’t afford a normal pc. I can’t believe nowdays in many countries, students keep going to school using paper books! And some of this books cost more than this little computer! Obviously being so small and economic this computer will have many possible application, i let you imagine which ones. Also note that this mini pc can run Quake 3 game without any problem.

This is a glimpse of the Future!

    This looks pretty cool.

    Seems ideal to run older games! :)

    • if u mean retrogaming i agree with you but windows95-98-me-etc old games will be difficult since the computer run only on linux.
