Yes PIC, as in Personal Internet Communicator. A PIC is an inexpensive computer created by AMD, running a stripped down version of Windows CE. Now, 2 years after its initial release, there is a second-generation of the PIC available and the Computer and Peripheral Testing Laboratory, in the Thailand Science Park near Bangkok University, has successfully booted an OLPC (http://laptop.org/) image of Edubuntu (http://www.edubuntu.org) on one.
Head on over to LinuxDevices.com and read the entire article (http://www.linuxdevices.com/news/NS6147197554.html). Interested in further reading and specifications, then check out the OLPC Thailand Wiki Page (http://pclab.nectec.or.th/wiki/index.php/Hardware#AMD_Personal_Internet_Communicator).

PIC - Is a very simple processor but anyhow people has used it to create the smallest webserver. The PIC is good for creating an interface between sensor or other limited devices and a serial port.
