    hi ob1,

    It would be helpful if you 'threaded' your 'Raspberry' application projects to ETO.:)

    Hi,

    Congrats to the winners, especially ()blivion. I hope you get some good use out of it, and maybe you can update us on just how well they work in practice when you go to use one. For example i would like to know how they compare to the low end Android Tablets for internet surfing and such, and also for hardware interfacing like external microcontrollers and stuff like that.

    Oh, I will. If I can come up with something good to do.

    Sure thing, I too am wondering how the 700Mhz dual cores compare to say, a faster single core laptop. It's not going to compare well to my desktop, but that's to be expected.

    I think Unclejed would be the person to ask as of right now. As Ian had said, he has some good tutorials in the blog section.

    I have mine hooked up to my TV... It's a cool media player... I can play video from any computer on my home network or from it's USB port.. I installed XBMC, It runs as a standalone unit... If you plug in a 1TB hard drive you can cram all your photo's, video's and music on it... And it takes about 30 seconds to boot..... There are tons of plugins available..

    Great little device....
