I don't know.

I've just bought one today. Why ? I wanted a mini-PC. I've choose the
Shuttle SN85G4, for athlon64 socket 754. I liked the box. There was an
equivalent for P4.
But the Athlon 64 has a good perf/price ratio (I've bought the 3000+).
It's fun/new/a technical chalenge to run a 64bit proc. Debian handles

Well, it's not good, objective technical reasons, but I wanted more
speed than my Athlon Tbird 1Ghz, quieter PC. So why not ADM64, for
general home usage.

My 2 cents (and 1st post to the list),
