    Can I run a hypervisor on that?

    Where is that video of Pi running quake?

    They should build them with dual NICs... then you can cluster them :).

    Those little boards as blades that fit in a blade enclosure would totally rock.

    I see no reason why this wouldn't be possible.

    Fixed.

    Still possible with just one NIC. There are the obvious design disadvantages, but it has been done before with other boards (BeagleBoards etc):

    Before dual NICs I'd personally want to see PoE first. It'd be nice if they started a line that was solar powered and wireless for sensing network projects. Single charge battery options wouldn't be bad either. I guess there's not much incentive for this yet since arduino covers a lot of these areas.

    That looks like a hot mess...LOL.
    At least it works :).

    PoE would work for workstations.

    I need a blade enclosure with blades :).

    This is all really going to take off with either quantum computer, nanotechnology, bio-computing, or some combination of the three.

    Watch Out, Raspberry Pi; Via Announces The APC 8750, A $50 Android PC

    http://www.maximumpc.com/article/news/watch_out_raspberry_pi_announces_apc_8750_50_android_pc

    I recently got an Arduino Uno from Radio Shack. It is not a computer with an operating system but it is programmable in something like the C language.

    http://www.radioshack.com/uc/index..../pages/Arduino.html&noBc=true&camp=PPC:Google

    http://www.radioshack.com/search/index.jsp?kwCatId=&kw=arduino&origkw=arduino&sr=1

    So things are getting interesting again like the late 70s. These bloated Windows operating systems are worse then the mainframes of the 80s.

    um

    Radio shack carries a lot of Arduino and maker kits (from make magazine) now. They're getting back to their roots.
