Intel Processor N97 Pico-ITX SBCGIGAIPC did not provide any information about OS support, but it will be Windows and/or Linux depending on driver support…  It’s not the first Intel N97 Pico-ITX SBC we’ve covered, as the AAEON PICO-ADN4 is offered with Intel N50, N97, Core i3-N305, or Atom x7425E Alder Lake-N processors.

Availability and pricing information were not disclosed, but for reference, the AAEON sells samples of the PICO-ADN4 (N97) for $309. A few more details about the PICO-N97A may be found on the product page and press release.
