I just saw a new snippet that Netpliance have modified their iopeners
to stop people getting a cheap PC. It remains to be seen what they
have done to stop people but knowing what I know about board design &
manufacturing I suspect that it amounts to leaving critical components
off the board (that critical could just amount to the IDE header).
I reckon NetBSD is ahead of the game since they cannot do without the
flash disk :-)
