There's been lots of fuss about the Raspberry PI and now it's even
finally resulting in BPQ32 being ported to Linux.

How about JNOS?   I've heard it compiles and runs there just fine and
it already has support for various devices and modes as rich, if not
richer, than BPQ32.   Anybody using it?

Personally I find the Pi cute but it's not that special...   The
Pogoplug devices, from Amazon, are now in the same price range ($20 to
$50) and have some better USB and Ethernet functionality.

Is anybody running JNOS on a Pogoplug?   I'm assuming that would
require a full Linux install instead of the Optware embedded
configuration due to the uContext issue - more on that in another
