If VIA didn't already have enough things going for it this week at Computex with the OpenBook, Nano Processor Family, and Chrome 440 GTX, they have just announced the Mini-ITX 2.0 Form Factor specification. Mini-ITX 2.0 is coming seven years after VIA originally created the Mini-ITX design. One interesting note about this form factor's design is that it mandates the system to have at least one PCI Express x16 slot. Major Linux distributions (Ubuntu, gOS, or SuSE) are also mentioned as being compatible with VIA's very-small-computing design. All the information on Mini-ITX 2.0 can be found on the VIA website
