It is a fabulous idea though -- I don't remember the name of the  
product but a year or so ago there was a portable PPC linux-based  
pocket-sized computer, the idea being you would carry around your  
personal desktop workstation in your pocket (instead of just a USB  
stick) and plug in anywhere you liked, with your own familiar  
desktop.  The size of the BB (post-it size) and the fact it'll easily  
power from USB & be a USB networky gadget out of the box is ideal.

Maybe I should make machined travel cases for it! ;)
