Fully functioning miniature Linux computers

I haven't seen fully functioning defined as 200MHz and 64MB RAM defined
in about 10 years. 1GHz and 10GB is the lower limit of anything truly
functional as of 2007.

The smallest hardware that will support this spec is probably OQO
(www.oqo.com).

For embedded applications, that is plenty. You can easily do control
automation, run a database, TCP/IP networking, etc. on half that hardware.

Your minimum requirements for doing anything usefull is laughable. You've
been using bloated GUIs for too long.
