After trying Linux Mint on an old desktop I got so excited that I bought a Linux MintBox 2 from CompuLab :-)

http://fit-pc.com/web/products/mintbox/

My plan is to use it as a Multimedia device under my Samsung TV and as a 24/7 Minecraft server for my boys.

eclipse
"Eclipse is a fantastic development tool. I have used it with great success to develop Android Apps and Minecraft/Craftbukkit Plugins."

grive
"You will need grive-tools as well, to make this work perfect. Grive is only a commandline tool. Grive-tools gives you a nice GUI and setup a Google Drive directory in your home folder."
