Definitely interested. Very cool piece of hardware. I am on the Raspberry PI group on Linkedin, quite interesting. Haven't ordered one yet, not sure if I will or stick to Atom based machines for fun projects on Linux.

Well it lives.   Powers up but doesnt boot into an OS.  I know practically nothing about linux so this is going to be new learning experience.  Downloading different image to try but as my connection is only 1.5mb will take awhile

What's a potato diet? Eating no potatoes or eating nothing but potatoes?

Don't forget to post some pics of your progress. :)

I'm expecting mine around the 28th this month, can anyone recommend a cheap 'n' cheerful power supply?
