HP's new ultra-slick HP 2120 Linux Media Server is launching in a week and apparently there are review units kicking around out there.

Has anyone had a chance to play with one and find out if it's possible to get Slimserver loaded on it?

If possible, this would allow me to retire my franken-NAS for once and for all and run something that's small, fast, light weight and easy to maintain.

Thanks!

WOW this looks very promising.

Does anyone have any info on it?

I agree, if there is more under the hood this thing becomes extremely impressive.

Gizmodo has done a very light weight review of it here;

Which sadly doesn't answer many questions such as whether or not it's possible to load other applications on this thing.
