I've been quite impressed with it.  There's lots of power under the hood
of that little blue box.  A nice zippy DVD/CDROM drive so nothing takes
forever to load....USB, Firewire, Dolby Surround & DTS sound out on a TOS
link digital cable, S-Video out.

If I could find someone who has the linux boot CD for it, I'd hang a USB
ethernet adapter off of it & run stuff on it via NFS.
