Subject: [Freedombox-discuss] Development system?

The Box software can be cross-compiled on whatever systems
developers have available or built on the target plug computers.
However, a powerful ARM-based system might be a better
development platform that either, assuming it could be paid
for.

A recent Slashdot story:
http://slashdot.org/topic/datacenter/low-power-slab-server-pairs-arm-with-linux/
led me to this:
http://www.baserock.com/servers

This is a half-length 1U rack mount device that has eight
quad-core ARM CPUs with 2G Ram and 30G SSD each
plus a high-speed onboard network connecting them.

It looks as if even one of those would be a good
development system for the Box. If budget allows,
a bunch of them might be even better.
