A Chinese company, YellowSheepRiver, has released the Municator, a $146 Linux based computer roughly the size of a VHS cassette, if you remember those. The system will connect to both monitors and TVs and sports a 400/ 800 MHz Godson processor, a 40 GB hard drive and 256 MB of RAM. The Municator runs the Thinix OS, which is a simplified version of Linux for those needing a PC that is cheap and easy to use. It is not a powerhouse but more than ample for web browsing with FireFox and email using Thunderbird. It may not be sold here in the US but here’s hoping. There are photos of the Municator at the link below.
