I can offer this perspective as to why EOMA68 is attractive. To design a
device based on a modern full featured SoC/CPU that is capable of running a
desktop level OS requires designing a PCB with high speed signalling for
the RAM etc. This is a non-trivial task that is beyond most people without
specific engineering expertise, and expensive software tools. A modular CPU
card like EOMA68 has all the high speed stuff taken care of, and can be
dropped into a PCB with a PCMCIA socket that even an advanced hobbyist can
design, get manufactured and then populate by hand soldering. As far as I
know, there has not really been anything like this in the past.

Making custom or prototype devices with modern CPUs is now accessible to a
far wider range of individuals and companies than before, and those devices
will be upgradeable as more EOMA68 cards appear.
