Well, I ponied up for the Netwalker, and I was just wondering who else here has done the same.

Is there any interest in the OESF community to support this device?
Ubuntu is on it natively, but who knows what else you folks could shove in the thing!

Did you have anything running or was the device just sitting there?

What was cpu usage?
A simple script on page can bump cpu to load where power governor (if any) pushes cpu on higher clock.
Wifi can consume a fair amount of power...
Anyway 4 hours are not that much...
