ok thanks.

It's a shame : having a home linux server with the ability to see server charge directly on screen would be amazing

It's always possible that they'll have it at some point in the future. I've seen them release Linux OSes for a few of the more popular models after a number of people have asked about it for that specific model. If that happens with the S1, they may. However, if they eventually do, I wouldn't expect it anytime soon, as it usually takes a good while. It really all depends on how popular the S1 becomes. It's quite unique, and the price is fairly attractive for what you get, so you never know.

I've noticed that some of the listings on Amazon no longer mention Windows - I suspect Linux comes on them now, or should have greater Linux support coming soon. Hopefully we can get clarity on that.

Hi all, as the previous message said, the LCD screen is programmed via port COM3 (using the chip CH340 to convert serial to usb and viceversa), a serial port through we send all the information to be displayed. The problem is that the software is only created for Windows. If you want to use the integrated screen and you have some skills in development, I think the best option is a little program in Go/Python (preferably the first) to read the information of the processor/disk/whatever and send to the LCD via serial communication with the proper library.

It is an interesting project, but at this moment I don't have any S1 to test.

Would it be possible to just use WINE?
