It was an intersting experience when we did the Letux 400 3 years ago. It already
came with Linux (2.4.20) and there was a 2.6.24 kernel. And a 2.6.31 project.
I.e. a full netbook with Debian and WLAN @ 129 EUR. A nice machine when it
came out. And still nice to open and learn electronics (schematics are public).
Anyways, we still have some of them ...
Nobody was/is interested in a really low cost device. It very soon lacks important
features and the processor is outdated.
This is the reason why we strive for high-end in the GTA04. Even if it makes
it expensive for the masses. This avoids becoming obsolete before it
