as the PI continues to drag its ass I keep looking for alternatives, already bought a 400Mhz arm system with a 3.5 inch color touchscreen and linux+QT already installed for 110 bucks to use as a PLC user I/O at work.

the longer it takes, the more the market will choke, and whats already out there is dropping like mad while new competitors cash in on the hype ... though they have the ability to make thousands of boards a day in house while PI is waiting for UPS to show up with a box or 2

Barely out of the starting block and already direct competition...


Yeah, I've been waiting to see how the Raspberry Pi shakes out.  If the VIA board becomes available (I don't consider it available to until many people actually have one) first, I'm sold.  That's a lot of power for $50.
