The above is an EPIA M6000; ie. a 600Mhz Eden CPU (fanless). The 
graphics card seems to be currently unsupported, so running a local 
desktop on it won't give.

I'm currently running fluxbox with Mozilla 1.4, which performs *very* 
decently, considering a 'mere' 600Mhz and the fact people say the CPU 
underperforms.

A make world takes somewhat less than two hours when not building games, 
sendmail and isdn.

I'm very happy with it so far. Rock solid, pretty fast and quiet. You 
can put this in your closet and not worry about it.

Bye... Nico
