    Consider that today's smartphones use something like a dual core 2GHz A5 processor and look at their performance. It isn't terrible but it's not exactly the speediest thing in the world. Then realize that a 700MHz ARM will be around half the performance.

    It is not suitable for you. Save up your money and give tribute to Lord Jobs like you are intended to do.

    It runs Fedora and there's a package to install VLC, but the installation thereof is something that requires at least the brains of an 8 year old child, and accordingly is far far beyond your competency.

    There's this process called "learning"? It's something people who are not you do in order to gain skills on things like computers. It usually involves the presence of a teacher, a book, or some other form of instructional material.

    The same way thousands and thousands of kids figured it out on their own computers, except this time they can get one for $35 instead of being lucky enough that their parents let them fuck around with the one they bought them.

    muninsfire: It is not suitable for you. Save up your money and give tribute to Lord Jobs like you are intended to do.

    It runs Fedora and there's a package to install VLC, but the installation thereof is something that requires at least the brains of an 8 year old child, and accordingly is far far beyond your competency.


    Calm down. Jobs didn't rape your mother and kill your father.

    Nope, he did not. He just enabled you to get onto the internets, completely bypassing the inherent intelligence-tests that we carefully implemented to allow some small filtration between your sort and those of us capable of learning.

    You know, that just gave me an amusing idea: take a regular computer case, and rack the inside to accept a metric assload of these little guys, converting the power supply to serve power to the spec that they accept.

    I'm not entirely certain what you would -do- with something almost capable of running Java, but it'd be a fun project.

    they run on 5v, I bet a standard PS's 5 supply would be able to run a case full of them.

    I just hung out on Efnet in a couple game channels to hook up with other people playing F/A 18 Hornet over Appletalk. That was a pain in the ass to get a game going with somebody.
