How would Linux run on this one? Perfect but one fear...

One word about my finding: niceeee... *drools* Seems too good to be true. I really need to contact that site and ask how much they charge for inter-EU sendings and order five of 'em motherboards - they cost only about twice the RAM I put in them.

So, my only gripe is this:
10/100 Mbits/sec LAN subsystem using the Broadcom* LAN adapter device
We all know how retarded Broadcom acts against OSS-community when it comes to WLAN, but how about LAN? Please don't tell me it's also one hellova theater to get working.

One last thing: what on earth is SiS Mirage graphic engine?

Hi Grife, Found a link in this thread. Looks as if the only real drawback is the video it has no 3d acceleration, and apparently only works well with the vesa driver. Hope that helps.
Good luck. ;-)
