Take a look at
http://www.pcworld.com/article/2046743/ ... board.html

There are 2 open source boards for x86 now avaible,
the Gizmo board (AMD)
and MinnowBoard (Intel)

Win8 in 1GB RAM? I don't think so.

No UEFI? Isn't that a requirement for Win8?

While clock speed isn't a true indicator of speed barring some kind of breakthrough in IPC these things have to be slow.

Edit: no FPU. About 400 bogomips at 400 MHz (stock is 300 MHz)
Go back to MS-DOS 6.22, and single task web browsing :lol:
And what is wrong with FreeDOS 1.1 + Dillo 3.0 for web browsing on a 25Mb/s connection over a 1Gb/s ethernet conection? I do this often on my AMD 486DX4 133MHz with 128MB of 60ns RAM in 72-pin DIMMS.

No problem as long as long as your HDD is smaller than 32 Terabytes and you do not mind being limited to a maximum of 4GB for a single file. Also it helps if you do not mind it being very quick (no more making tea while waiting for Office or FireFox to load :) ). And if you do not mind viewing videos off line there is a pluggin for the Arachne web browser to download youtube videos that is actualy kept up to date with the changes in youtube.

Ok I also use FreeDOS 1.1 + Dillo 3.0 + DJPP + FreePascal + CC386 + ARMCC on my 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo as Windows is not fast enough, and Linux is not as good as it used to be (though I also use Puppy Linux on both my Intel Core2Duo, and my RPi).

I thought people on the RPI forum could appreciate, that for learning it's best to go back to basic's and get away from bloat ware.
To teach good programming etc, it's best to have restrictive hardware.
This force's the programmer to make the best use of what is available.

Example: the arduino, you can do a surprising amount with little memory and 8bit.

You could for example run the x86 ver of DexOS on it, which including all drivers, is less than 60k.

The computer I use right now is a 2.8 Ghz Pentium 4 and it runs windows 7. The board should a least run Vista.

Not familiar with that one...I have a system with an AMD 486DX4-120 in it and I know of the Cyrix 486DX5-133. Both of those are lies, by the way. The AMD DX4-120 is really 3x40Mhz frontside and the Cyrix actually runs at 4x33MHz frontside. My personal opinion is that the DX4-120 is probably faster in practice than the DX5-133 because of memory bandwidth.

Apologies for re-hashing but DMP have released the basic model for around $40.00

For me personally it has no interest, gone are my days of MS-DOS Networking etcetera, I am more than happy with Arch and Raspbian Wheezy on my Pi !
