9 Thierry,
10 thanks for reply. Well I would really prefer any x86 because it is much
11 easier to create an appliance on a workstation I work on daily, and this
12 is not what I do for living, I just let zombies do my hardest work :-)
13 But alchemy's size and features really blew me away and I started
14 wondering how to use that platform for my favorite apps too.

20 Well then: does somebody have experience with small x86 devices ready to
21 use for gnap? Not simple ones, I would like to have 1.0+ GHz CPU, GPU
22 1280x1024@16M, 802.1q VLANs, flash card slot, 128+ RAM, watchdog, usb
23 2.0, audio, PS/2 keyboard, dsub/dvi?
25 Janusz.
