I need a fanless mini PC; it will run Debian. It will be used in a production environment. I need good Linux support to facilitate fast deployment and low maintenance. Avoiding non-free software really helps in that regard, so I consider non-free firmware barely tolerable, while out-of-tree kernel modules and things like ndiswrapper are definitely unacceptable. I have been surprised how many devices tout Linux in various ways but have partial mainline Linux support. Or instead, I am simply unable to find itemized information about Linux kernel support. Just because they ship with Linux (often Ubuntu) does not mean it is not a custom/tainted kernel. The other requirements: - ≥800 MHz processor speed (for x86, or equivalent for another architecture) - ≥1 GB memory - VGA (possibly using an adapter) - ≥2 USB connectors - audio, including a microphone port - 1 ethernet port - wireless: 802.11bg (PCI, PCIe, or etc, NOT external dongle; n is optional) - >25 GB flash memory (on-board, mSATA, SATA with 2.5 inch mount, or etc.) - no fans I have looked at: - Norhtec MicroClient JrMX - fit-PC2 (custom kernel, GMA500 issues?) - Linutop 4 - Trim-Slice H (custom kernel) - D2Plug - Aleutia devices (just mentions Ubuntu) Comments appreciated!
