I recently received my SheevaPlug with the intent of moving my main Internet-facing services/servers onto it.
This is part of a longer-term project where what was 700W of Solaris servers has been condensed onto one ~20W Linux laptop partially run from a small off-grid solar system. With the SheevaPlug I hope to get to well under 7W and run off solar all the time.http://www.earth.org.uk/low-power-laptop.html
Quick initial question: I'm sure I saw it in here while lurking but can no longer see it: I want to minimise (idle) power consumption with the tickless kernel: which is the most 'standard' setup that gives me tickless, eg does the stock Ubuntu? (It's newer than my Feisty/Gutsy x86 tickless laptop kernel.)
