Linux Console Rears Head Again
Envizions - the company that brought us the $679.99 Evo in 2006 is now bringing us the 2009, Linux version of the console.

This one costs $380 and comes with Athlon 64x2 5600 CPU (clocked to 2.4GHz), an ATI HD 3200 graphics chipset, 2GB of DDR2 RAM, and a 120GB hard drive. It will use a version of Fedora called Mirrors, which says Engadget "can be upgraded to a beefier build named Mirrors Evolution X."

It also will feature a "cloud service stacked with Amiga (!) games and an Akimbo-based video service. Beyond that, proper titles will be sold online and on SD cards for around $20".

So, you can now add the Evo to Onlive and Zeebo to look out for in the console market.

Or not...
