$100 Home Server Offers Hacker/Hobby Toolkit

Marvell announced a $100 plug-in server this week.  Plug it into the wall and attach the Gigabit Ethernet and you have a Linux kernel-based server with 512 MB memory and 512 MB storage.  Five watt maximum power draw, always on, remote access to storage ... you get the idea.

Way cool.

A developer's toolkit will be released soon, so you can play with this fascinating hobbyist platform.  Now you can host your own web site in the volume of a beer can.
