#1. It looks like it has the horsepower because misterhouse doesn't require much, but I don't think it will be easy. It is not really made for it. How well do you know Linux?


#2. Did you check the web site?

I don't see why not. As a matter of fact, it seems like a pretty neat idea  -:)
The Marvell Plug supports the Linux 2.6 kernel and with a 1.2GHz CPU, 512MB Flash and 512MB of DRAM, it is more than ample to run MisterHouse  :)%  As far as the Linux OS goes, I personally like Ubuntu Linux  >!

I know Linux fairly well. I research for a living so I'm confident I can find out what I need to know about setup etc. Somehow I didn't figure that the specs of a low power system would be mentioned under "how can I make it run faster"... Oops.

I'm thinking of using the Plug computer or a Fit-PC. I really like Ubuntu Linux and will be looking to use it too...
