Review of Linux Compatibility

The Zotac ZBOX ND22 is ideal for installing Linux on it. The small box can be used as desktop PC, if mainly office applications are envisaged. The NVIDIA Ion graphic card is supported by Linux (e.g. Ubuntu 12.04). Therefore the Zotac ZBOX AD02 is ideal as a HTPC and streaming client, also in HD (e.g. as Mythtv client).

Furthermore, the Mini-PC is a ideal server for the private network. The low power consumption due to the energy efficient Intel CULV Low-Voltage processor (Intel Celeron SU2300 – dual core) is sufficient for most applications while having small energy costs. The PC can be equipped with up to 8 GB RAM (1066 MHz NON-ECC, DDR3-800 So-Dimm) and has a internal 2,5″ SATA slot for the harddisk or SSD disk.
Due to Intel’s virtualization technique VT-x, which is supported by the SU2300 processor, the Zotac ZBOX AND22 can also be used as a server for virtual machines without major performance reduction. But for such scenario the AD02 should be equipped with the maximum RAM, i.e. 8GB, to have enough memory for all the running virtual machines.

The following CPU flags are provided by the CPU and the following BogoMips are reported by /proc/cpuinfo:

flags		: fpu vme de pse tsc msr pae mce cx8 apic sep mtrr pge mca cmov pat pse36
