 i don't, but several people do.  the 1024x600 screen kills it, for
me, personally.

 yes - they actually complied with the GPL.  however, the boot loader
appears to be proprietary: it's an unknown quantity, there.  further
investigation - being carried out by various people interested in this
device - will find the answers.

 i'm actually more interested in fully-free-software-compliant
systems, preferably with 1280x768 or greater resolution screens.  the
extra $20 is just not worth saving on the BOM.
