More power to ya.  Suffice it to say, most of our orders aren't coming from
folks who think 'entertainment' == 'linux installfest' ;)

But for all those FoRKers who do like installing linux on small hardware, I
have a job for you :)

P.S. Kit coming out next week -- supply your own hard drive, have the
entertainment of installing our os+software onto it (totally web based)

P.P.S. No, I'm not paying Jim to do marketing :)  But I might give free
shipping to anyone who puts 'FoRK' in the comment field on our order form :)
