Pandora Is Starting To Really Interest Me

I've got mixed feelings/impressions on Gentoo. While I love the distro (hence me using it on my main box), it seems odd to port it to the Pandora, only to add in a packaging system. Seems like it would be better to just port Debian with the optimizations or something to me, but I'm not going to complain having about more (as in quantity) optimized distros available.
2) Portage allows you to port and do some optimizations with almost no effort of the end user, just emerge the needed package (pending it's flagged as Arm compatible).
But the extra binary layer they're adding in kind of defeats this purpose (why not just make them into IPKs|RPMs|DEBs?)...

Still, I'm happy to have more choices, and the only real downside I see is the wear you'd get on SD cards when building natively (if you do that at all).

new blog post on openpandora.org including a nice video of Angstrom running on the pandora.
That beast is gonna be really fast !
Just seeing how long it takes to launch gnumeric (take a look at the video) would convince me to order one immediately ...

But, then again, I already ordered.      

Have fun,
Chero.

The news are that there is no news... 1st batch is gonna take some more time. In the best scenario it could take a pair of months from now...

Guess I made the right decision (at least for me...) to bail on the re-order.....

Although my mobile device garage is pretty empty right now....only pocketable device I have now is my N810...

They have started producing the first batch.  This will be my next portable when my c1000 needs replacing.

I've got mine !

Check this for a start : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WlxmJkGav4

There are already quite a lot of unboxing vids on youtube.
And some reviews can be found in the pandora section of www.gp32x.com/board

Nice and very fast device !

Have fun,
Chero
