Enlightenment... Now Running On Refrigerators

Free Software

The Enlightenment Libraries haven't even hit version 1.0 yet (though they're getting close and in beta right now), but these libraries and other parts of Enlightenment are already in production use. Besides Samsung getting in bed with Enlightenment for their smart-phone Linux OS, this open-source software is now appearing in... refrigerators.

The Infinity I-Kitchen refrigerator from Electrolux/Frigidaire has brought a touch-screen to the facade of the refrigerator that is running ARM Linux and uses the EFL (Enlightenment Foundation Libraries) for the user-interface, the Evas software renderer (there's no hardware acceleration on this fridge), and there's even a photo application based upon Ethumb.

The refrigerator's ARM system is made up of a Freescale i.MX25 400MHz CPU, 128MB of RAM, and a 480 x 800 display panel.

This news was relayed by Enlightenment.org after ProFusion did the embedded development work.

Now to write a Phoronix Test Suite test profile to benchmark a refrigerator... Perhaps to test how well it can keep some Augustiner and Franziskaner cold?
