Submission + - GNU/Linux and Enlightenment running on a Fridge (

k-s writes: Linux, the GNU userland and Enlightenment and its foundation libraries (EFL) are known due their resource efficiency and flexibility, key components for embedded products. Today it was announced that such features led them to be used in a Fridge that runs Linux and X11 with EFL.

The Freescale i.MX25 based fridge by Electrolux (Frigidaire) provides the expected bits such as temperature controls and pre-set modes (vacation, party) as well as a special purpose drawer that cools your drinks and food with a beautiful UI. It also ships with handful applications for contacts, calendar, reminder, digital picture frame and even illustrated recipe book with a famous Brazilian magazine.
