WOW, I want one of these. A company from France by the name of Calao Systems has come up with a complete Linux PC that fits into a slightly bulky USB Key form factor. Measuring 3.3×1.4 inches and sporting an ARM Processor, 256MB RAM, an Ethernet port and 2 USB ports, it also has a 50 pin expansion port.

Talk about your awesome Cyber-cafe security tool, you’d know no one was snooping on you if you booted their computer with your own version of Linux (SUSE, of course!) from a USB key that looks like this one:

Of course there are distributions of Linux that will FIT on a USB Key, but so far this is the smallest Linux PC I have seen.
