Pros: I bought one knowing that it would run Linux, but with the intent to use it as a UNIX based network router. The low power was the kicker, it will be running for the next several years. We decided to try it with everything we had before it was pressed into commercial service. We loaded three different Linuxes as well as FreeBSD Unix 7.0 and several "appliances" based on it, FreeNAS, Vyetta, PFsense, and Monowall. No problems with MS XP-pro either. I like it enough that I'm buying a second one, to replace a network performance monitor. This will be 3X the Speed at 1/3 the cost, and 1/3 the power use of the old one!

Cons: Hey its only 1.5ghz with built in basic video! Over-clockers and bleeding-edge gamers should look elsewhere.

Overall Review: The built in "GOS" with google-apps and open-office should actually be enough to suit those who only really use a browser, word processor and a spread sheet.
