At $56, yeah, it's somewhat interesting (it'd be a lot more interesting
if it had more than one Ethernet). Though in terms of functionality/watt
I think embedded x86 will always be a bit of a lose.
150MHz FPU-less 486 -- what's the CPU exactly? Is it an AMD Elan? I
have never seen the 150MHz variant of that chip though I have seen the
datasheet from time to time.
NetBSD does support x86 systems with no FPU. So whatever the problem is,
it's assuredly not that.
