I am very, very new to Linux so if I ask some ignorant questions, I
apologize in advance.
I've been thrown onto a project at work which involves a mini PC (Intel chip
on a miniturized motherboard, RAM, USB port, etc) and have been given the
task of finding a suitable OS for it. They want to go with Linux and I see
no problem with that, since Linux is a very stable environment, according to
all the Linux-heads I've ever spoken to. The requirements for this device
is that it has to be tolerant to being TURNED ON AND OFF from the power
Question 1: Is a normal distribution of Linux able to handle the possibility
of being turned on and off frequently without ruining the OS?
Question 2: Is the embedded version of Linux designed for a PC? Or does the
device have to be some weird, proprietary type?
Question 3: Is there a way to boot Linux QUICKLY and load the software
Thanks very much for your help.
