I remember once considering buying a Yoggie Gatekeeper (basically an
embedded computer running a firewall that connects via USB). On the box
it says that it supports Linux (well unless there's another OS with tux
as a logo...), yet the salesman said it didn't. The funny thing is that
the device actually *runs* Linux itself.
