    Very nice, an upgraded SheevaPlug... I was thinking about a SheevaPlug to use as a dedicated Ventrilo chat client, using a USB headset and StealthSwitch II for the push-to-talk function. This looks like it would be a little more robust, and I could use one of my old Bluetooth headsets. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

    Wonder if it could be used as a dedicated always-on Skype client?

    THAT was the FIRST thought that came to my head was to use this for skype, would have multimedia on there too for streaming but that would be PERFECT for skype.
  5. its important that its a floating point cpu or not because without transcoding is impossible and scaling pictures is very slow
