Please note, if you want to run a "non-tainted" Linux kernel, that's not
going to be possible just yet with this device.  It ships with two
closed source kernel modules (via 3d and broadcom wireless), that are
much larger than the rest of the whole kernel itself.

I'm supposed to be getting one of these "real-soon-now" and will
hopefully be able to get it working properly without these modules.

But until then, I wouldn't recommend it to any -elitists...

thanks,
