They're looking at the 'kiosk' type applications where the amiga did well in the past, but also the server market... for an average medium sized ISP, they reckon that using the MicroA1 (ITX) will save the company £100,000 per year just for electricity and take up a quarter of the space, then there's vastly reduced running temperature of G3 cpu's compared to intel/amd, add to that a system that if it crashes will restart itself within 10 seconds unless something really serious has happened...
I like it when people see a need and have a logical solution. I have a g3-400 in an upgraded pm7500 mac and I like how it just has a small heatsink (no fan) and doesnt get very warm at all even if its crunching numbers a while. Its rare to see a processor faster then 200mhz that isnt generating alot of heat these days.
