Hardware, Embedded Systems People have been saying for some time that operating systems will eventually just become windows to the "cloud" (essentially browsers) and everyone will just use web applications, but now a company called CherryPal is really doing it. Plus, the CherryPal uses only 2 Watts of power.

So Linux doesn't lower costs?

I thought one of the big selling points of all of these machines was that they would use Linux and thus the cost would be significantly lower. In the end, as other comments have pointed out, you can get a low end PC with Vista or whatever for like $50 more. This isn't worth it.
