writes "nVidia is going to support the VIA Nano CPU on the ION platform. For those people that don't know the ION platform brings the HD video decoding to netbook and nettop class systems. nVidia has already shown the ION combined with Intel's Atom CPU but now it will be available for the higher performance VIA Nano CPU.
What this means is that we could see some very nice, low power, and Linux friendly netbooks, nettops, media pcs, and set-top boxes. While nVidia doesn't offer FOSS drivers they do have a much better record of Linux support than S3 does.
