Thanks for the link, their computers look very cool and fun to use. But
for my current goal of using it as a lightweight PIM server, the
touchscreen, bluetooth, etc. seem a little like overkill.
On the other hand, the next time I am looking to buy a portable device,
I would definitely consider it, it the hardware supports fully free
firmware and software.

I would like to set up a tiny form factor groupware server
(including calendar, tasks, and contacts functions) for personal
use, in my attempt to untangle myself from Google and have a more
Free computing experience.
For the groupware software, I am considering Citadel
(http://www.citadel.org/) and SOGo
(http://www.sogo.nu/english.html). And of course, I would like to
use gNewSense as the operating system. Anyone has tips on setting
either Citadel or SOGo in gNewSense?
On the hardware side, I am looking at the VIA ARTiGO A1100
with the following specifications:
Processor: 1.2 GHz VIA Nano (64-bit)
Memory: 2 GB 200-pin DDR2 800 mHz
Graphics: VIA Chrome9 3D/2D AGP Integrated Graphics
LAN: VIA VT6122 10/100/1000
Audio: VIA VT1708S 8 channel HD audio
Wireless: VIA 802.11 b/g (not sure what model number)
HDD: Transcend 32GB SSD or OWC Mercury 40GB Extreme Pro SSD
Here's what I am wondering:
Are the software and hardware solutions I stated above Free (as in
Freedom)? I know gNewSense is, but what about hardware support for
IF the hardware is not fully free, is there a viable alternative of
a similar, tiny form factor? Perhaps something similar to the Lemote
Yeeloong but not a netbook? If the Yeeloong is the only way to go,
please let me know how I should set it up.
Please let me know either way, and if there is an alternative please
show me where to find it?
I have asked this question on multiple forums and received NO
replies for more than a week.....
