Hardware, Embedded Systems "Unless you are a big fan of small form-factor computing, you probably haven't been tracking the development of VIA's Pico-ITX motherboards. This form-factor was announced at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, but it has been almost impossible to get your hands on an ITX motherboard and the official U.S. release has yet to happen. A few samples have made their way to reviewers and developers, but because of their rarity coverage has been sparse."

It's already happening in a way - silent, thin client systems are being introduced into student 'ilounges' and learning environments both becaue of noise and cost and on account of being able to exert greater central control over workstations - at least in UK HE. There's also a greater allocation for laptop hotdesks relative to fixed traditional desktops, which also has a similar effect regarding the lessening of noise and running costs for the central administration.
