Oops ! StrongARM is an Intel processor ;-) Damned, they are everywhere !
My first choice was to avoid Intel i386, because i386 architecture grow too
fast to have a stable plateform. In 2 months, only Celeron 500 will be
available, and in 6 months, Celeron will go out of business.
But embeded system based on i486 or socket7 could be a good choice (helas,
the 2nd network interface is hard to get).
