Multimedia, AV We were pleasantly surprised when we discovered (by snooping on its firmware files) that the Pontis MX2020 multimedia device that Geeks.com sent us for a review actually uses Linux (embedded distribution uCLinux, kernel 2.4.19). If it's video, audio, pictures, recording or even basic PDA functionality via its touch screen, the Pontis MX2020 can do it all. And for very cheap too.

isn't ARM a special Microcontroller? It's used in all the ipods and in most mobile phones, and pdas. Why not here? I suspect it is a System on Chip from some guys like Portal Player, or maybe an asic from Broadcom or something that has an ARM core... o'well.
