Why do people involved with interesting open-sourced projects always A) use acronyms till your eyes drop out and B) come up with naming conventions that make you want to eat broken glass?

Nifty project though. Something that kids should definitely be encouraged towards if the next generation of developers, programmers and graphics wizards aren't just going to be a bunch of GUI-pokers.

Unsurprisingly the launch partners selling the device can't handle the traffic to their sites. I'll wait for batch 2 or 3 of device B.

Real bloody shame they couldn't have partnered with someone big and massive, but then I guess this is to be expected really :)

If we can get enough of 'em we've got a plan to give one of these and a kindle to all of our students next year. Sounds like a bloody good plan.

I want to use my L33t woodworking skillzor to make a wooden case for one. Fancy having a wooden computer :)

Mine's going in my model M1 Abrams. Should be easy enough to cut the port cutouts into the shell of my tank.

Excited about these.

Am I right in thinking ARM applications need compiling especially for ARM on Linux too?

Yup. Though I'm quite sure it won't be long before someone manages to squeeze something a bit more friendly onto the thing. I'm wondering if anyone's going to manage to squeeze something like media centre onto it.

Elsewise, there's plenty of easily accessible and compile-able bits and bobs to try on it. I'm thinking Mame...

xbmc?

Personally, I'm hoping for a SlimServer/SqueezeCente/LogitechMediaServer port.

Wow, had no idea the project was that far advanced. I'm definitely 'aving one!
