So I was just reading about Marvell’s Plug Computing solution. Basically a $100 (goal is to get the price point down to $50) Linux based computer in the form factor of a wall wart. First let me say this is really damn cool. Cheap, small form factor, low power and doesn’t try to do too much (no video output for example).
The one thing that hit me though is that this would possibly be a great platform for end users to use Cabernet. I’ve been concerned with getting the average wine drinker to install a database and Ruby on Rails and all that, but this is so elegant that I could imagine people buying pre-loaded units with Cabernet pre-installed- just plug in and go!
