Linutops are fanless and have no hard drive so they are very quiet. The small size of these devices is very convenient and allows them to be attached directly behind a screen. These mini PCs are also robust and can operate 24/7 on digital signage mode.
As all system configuration is stored on flash memory, the risks of system corruption on Linutop
mini computers are close to zero. Their system can be protected by a password so that it is insensitive to false manipulation. Thus, whenever the Linutop is started, the initial state is always recovered, unless a specific configuration is performed.
