Single-Chip Linux Computer

From EP&P: “Axis Communications, a global leader in network technology, announced today the availability of the AXIS ETRAX 100LX MCM 2+8, a new generation system-on-a-chip that integrates 2MB Flash, 8MB SDRAM and an Ethernet transceiver into a single chip with a 27mm x 27mm footprint. The chip, which is designed for networked devices such as wireless access points, digital video recorders and access control and security systems, enables developers to reduce costs in both the design and production cycles.” [Slashdot thread]

Am thinking if this can be used to make low-cost thin clients: all we need there is a Pentium I-class CPU, 8/16 MB RAM, a network interface and a video out for the display.
