True, but odd.

I admit, it doesn't say it runs linux, but it says it's fully open source, i think the chances are it's some linux or other.
Anyway, yeah, lots of practical applications for this one...

It uses an Arduino microcontroller so it doesn't actually have an operating system. I actually have an Arduino that I bought a couple of years ago to play around with and learn a little more about electronics. It's pretty cool actually. Here's a post I made about it:
