      AROS-ARM Linux hosted I am guessing and if its anything link the Raspberry Pi I expect it will feel very responsive.  

      Sadly there is virtually no ARM binaries for other AROS software available to download so its not very useful at present, but hopefully this will change and become useful in the future. :-)

      Personally, I'd really like to see Haiku or MorphOS running on this. That would make my day! :)

      A stable AROS port with Odamex and ScummVM would certainly keep me happy too! Then if ARM ever gets JIT, we can all celebrate and enjoy UAE with DOSbox. Oh to dream.

      UAE4Droid on Android has a 68k JIT core for ARM I think.

      Is no-one porting AROS-ARM to the boards from HardKernel?

      One really nice feature about these boards is the SATA interface - that creates a lot more possibilities than the Pi (eg : open source NAS amongst other things)

      I would have bought one by now except there seems to be no UK stockist an Im not massively keen on ordering one from china of ebay.

      Anyone in the UK got one of these yet?

      Yep, since the A15 was released, these have come down.
      I might have to buy one.
      The lack of an SATA connection is not a problem for me.
