Hiya,

A friend just sent me this link:

Pretty darn cool, I think! Hopefully it has a really "light" OS that lets it perform the tasks that most of us need it to! To top it off, it is (supposedly) made with biodegradable materials and is (largely?) easily recyclable.

The computer body is composed of bioplastics and biodegradable materials made from starch and cellulose, so end-of-life netbooks are ultra-easy to recycle.
