I will be demonstrating some little low power Linux computers at the 
Sydney Linux Users Group (SLUG), in Sydney, 29 February 2008. Free 
and all welcome: <http://www.slug.org.au/node/90>. By the end of 2008 
I suggest these will be considered "normal" computers and current PCs 
will be seen as cumbersome dinosaurs:

"A Watershed for the Networked Organisation

With trends for carbon neutral, thin client, wireless and open source 
converging to signal a radical change in the use and distribution of 
the desktop personal computer and the desktop phone, the CIO is being 
presented with real challenges for transformation.

Low power, diskless and low cost advances are creating alternatives 
and opportunities for the organisation to simplify their systems. 
Some of the results from testing those alternatives with carbon 
neutral thin client computers, handheld Linux systems and diskless 
sub notebook computers will be included and discussed in this presentation.

If low power and portable networked systems are set to revolutionise 
the organisation, the CIO needs to be ready.

Tom Worthington will demonstrate, exciting devices such as the Zonbu 
Thin Client Computer and the Asus Eee PC."
