Some good responses on this thread, but let me re-iterate the  
hardware specifications:

AMD Geode 400mhz
128mb DRAM
512mb IDE-interfaced Flash Rom for HD

We're talking small.  Current soekris boards have double these specs.

With that, remember how much you could do with a Mac Classic  
(requirements that are closer to the kids laptops, windowing gui,  

8 MHz 68000 CPU
2mb memory
40mb hard drive
