Designed to reduce maintenance costs, Linutop is an environment-friendly computer that runs the Linux 26 kernel with a variety of GTK applications that are oriented towards web browsing and Internet communication. It is for all intents and purposes, a miniaturized ready-to-use desktop PC that is multi-media capable which offers line-out/microphone-in for sound. Linutop is most suitable for places such as Internet cafes, public libraries and schools.
The Linutop OS is stored in an internal flash memory and thus cannot be altered by virus or mishap. It is delivered with free standard and ready-to-use Linux software and can easily be customized with additional software. Linutop 1 is the smallest and most energy efficient computer of the line while the Linutop 2 has an internal flash memory for storing the software and the OS.
