Solar Net One

I just saw this news via twitter, thanks to Joy Tang of OVF

I think this would suit excellent for an internet center in Nigeria, or in other parts of Africa.

Solar Net One

Its about a solar powered system which runs debian linux on a server with up to 50 thin clients. There is already one such system deployed in Nigeria. Sounds excellent., the only prohibitive thing is the price 15000$ US Although this is not much if you know that you have an autonomous internet center which will work for 20 years. Sasha
