    * 256MB of SDRAM
    * OpenGL ES 2.0
    * 1080p30 H.264 high-profile decode
    * Composite and HDMI video output
    * USB 2.0

Personally, I'd spend more and get something based on the Cortex A9. The ARM11 is a fairly weak performer and 256MB of memory is pretty slim.

You could probably use a pretty slim Debian install with XFCE or something. Obviously usage will be a bit limited, but there's options :)
