I use a SheevaPlug (with the internal 120VAC->3.3VDC power supply replaced 
with a 12VDC-3.3VDC converter) ARM machine running Ubuntu as an igate and 
TNC-sharing device in my shack.  I don't actually use it to handle my weather 
station (I have that connected to my desktop machine for other reasons), but 
it would be perfectly capable of doing so.
