Could be brilliant for home automation - running a web server on the same hardware which can connect directly to other bits could lead to some interesting creations.

Opens up home automation quite alot, all you need to do is add some relays and you're away!

It's mainly the price for me, there are loads of boards that do the same and more, just not for 25 quid, at that price it's a bit more powerful than an arduino.

I recieved mine on 3rd May from Farnell... put Debian on it and booted it up... put XBMC on it and booted it up... and er, that's about it so far

Haven't really had much chance to mess with it, but didn't want to sell it for profit like some of the leeches on ebay

I've got my eye on the upcoming APC from VIA now though
