Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
I've had Civ 3 games hit the triple-digit hours mark so the 4-5 hours doesnt bother me that much. What does bother me is that the in-between-turns wait gets so long by the time you hit gunpowder that I spend more time waiting than playing.
Someone goes and figures out the algorithm used, makes a piece of software that tell you your unlock code and bam, you have your unlock code, free.

GMA 950 is barely (just barely) usable for regular 2D tasks. As someone above said, the damned thing is so slow you can see windows redraw on X. So you may as well at least get a chip that can handle 2D. A motherboard with a nVidia 9300 embedded should not be too hard to find for a similar price. Like you said -- there are drivers for it as well that are open, even if they can't handle 3D.
Except that this thing is so horribly underpowered that it's a waste of 10 watts. There's a difference between green and usable and just plain green.
If I really wanted to play around with something green and still usable in niche jobs, I'd just get a SheevaPlug. They draw even less power and also cost about a 5th of the price of this.
He said build. I assume that implies built from parts which means no Norton, no MS tax.
Also, the GMA 950 cannot do HD video, and the Atom would struggle immensely. I wouldn't even try playing 1080p stuff on it as it would choke almost immediately. Good luck with the gaming too, the GMA 950 couldnt display a 20-polygon pile of shit if it tried. The system is severely underpowered for a desktop machine. I've seen better specs on netbooks.

Im pretty sure that also got discontinued with the 9xxx generation of nVidia GPU's
