Hi there,

I have a dream (no pun intended) to run SqueezeBoxServer and a parametric equalizer on a plugcomputer.
An easy way to implement this, would be to simply install the brutefir (and fftw) packages readily available for Linux.
Now, these packages require a CPU-architecture with a FPU to run acceptably efficient.

Is there such a thing as a plugcomputer with a FPU? Or are there plans for any? Where could I get it?
The only alternative I see, is to use a traditional server on a Desktop computer with all its downsides.

Best regards,
-thomas

A plug computer or a "traditional" server are two extreme cases. There is a lot in between. There are dozens of so called SBC (Singe-Board-Computer) with low power consumption and x86 compatible CPU (and FPU). They are rather expensive compared to a plug computer, but still cheaper than a desktop (depends on the configuration, of course).

Lack of knowledge is not such a big problem, unwillingness to learn is.

There is the fft-arm project, which appears to have died.

And there's the RVDS toolkit from ARM, which is $$$$$$$.
