[PLUG] LINUX remote controlled model airplane - your PDA has the controls

This article on LINUX sounds way more fun than the SUN LINUX Desktop (which is 
branded under the name " the Java Desktop System" )...

This whitepaper from Intrinsyc describes how engineers at IBM's Pervasive 
Computing Advanced Technology Laboratory created an embedded Linux based 
intelligent, high-level remote control system for a model airplane as a way to 
showcase Gateway Server technology.  Even includes Global Positioning Satelite 
technologies.  LINUX may now move from cool! to way-cool!

The SUN LINUX Desktop system was known as the Mad Hatter project, but now it 
is known by a very confusing name with "Java" injected into the name.
