I like it, and I would buy one except that it uses a resonator rather than a crystal.  I hate that I have a decimillia tied up in my clock, but pretty much all of the cheaper boards won't work because of they use resonators
Hmm, in this case, a resonator is used due to a lack of space. If you were dedicated, a HC-49US sized crystal would certainly fit the layout, and two small caps could be soldered between it's legs.
Certainly some of 'the cheaper boards' do use crystals, I know NKCElectronics uses crystals in some of his Freeduino kits. My own MaxSerial board supports a crystal, and I'd be happy to substitute one in on request.
