Kiang is a round tabletop computer for general use.

specs

  1. Zytouch capacaitive touch screen built into it, and a small x86 embedded system underneath that..
  2. VIA Eden board with a code name 'Esther' processor on it. It clocks at 400mHz but cat /proc/cpuinfo shows it may be able to go up to 1Ghz (with active cooling?)
  3. bluetooth
  4. wifi card
  5. Ubuntu 10.04 installed on a 3.5 IDE drive. The generic install works fine out of the box, but optimizations for an older memory and speed limited system would never hurt.

to do

  1. make list above more specific
  2. It needs some Zytouch driver love, which may come from here:
