I guess we'll see, but my feeling is that the mac mini refresh will be the best way to go, whether you choose OSX or linux.
Why did you bring up the atom CPUs? This mITX board is supposed to support C2Duo and C2Quad CPUs.
A quad-core in a tiny box like that would be AWESOME
It supports the Atom as well, I think, but the real benefit is the C2D support.
