Hardware, Embedded Systems El Reg has reviewed the Shuttle x100. "The Shuttle X100 is an unusual Windows PC that stands out thanks to its tiny size and stylish looks. It thoroughly deserves to reclaim the many receptionists' desks that are currently occupied by iMacs across the nation and it's ideal for duties in your living room where a noisy beige tower simply won't be tolerated."

What's Windows got to do with it...?

"... an unusual Windows PC"

I have, over the last three years, purchased 5 Shuttle XPCs for data collection in our lab. They all have, and continue, to run Linux - in fact, they never even had Windows on them.

Whatever... I guess I get a twinge of annoyance whenever any generic x86 box is referred to as a "Windows PC".

It isn't sold as a barebone unit for now. So, you have the option of buying Windows, Windows, or Windows (Home, Professional, or Media Center). That's what Windows has to do with it.

Hey I think we should call the new Macs "Windows PCs" too now if you follow that thought since they are damn close to being "generic" in my opinion. That will annoy certain people reading this haha - yes you.

And you can't buy them without Windows either? Apple is a strange company...
