The article says to check the website for information on the X resolution solution for the Appian Rushmore Quad-DVI PCI card, but it doesn't seem to be here... or maybe I missed it. I followed links for the video card as well as pogolinux, but couldn't find the information mentioned.

Any hints?

Maybe I missed it, but it looks like you put a kick-ass sound card on a box with no speakers. This is not too surprising as I doubt a box like this would be used as a desktop.

Where can I find out more about the issues regarding the HDTV cards?

As Linux grows in importance in terms of value to the business, managing Linux environments to high standards of service quality — availability, security, and performance — becomes an essential requirement for business success.

They need agility, flexibility, convenience, ROI, and control.

Stackato private Platform-as-a-Service technology from ActiveState extends your private cloud infrastructure by creating a private PaaS to provide on-demand availability, flexibility, control, and ultimately, faster time-to-market for your enterprise.
