[Arm-netbook] Operating Systems, CPU Cards, EOMA68

this is triggered mainly by the discussion last month from manuel, i
had a bit of time to think and i came up with an idea.

if you recall, manuel asked "would it be ok to buy a specific model of
CPU card, install an OS that only works with the Games Console?" and
the answer was "yes... but you could not call it EOMA68 compliant"

so anyway i thought about this a bit and i figured that it makes a lot
of sense to have the OS (which really has nothing to do with the CPU
Card per se) basically adjust so that it works with whatever it

... in other words, from an end-user perspective, you would buy a
Gaming *Card*, or an Work *Card*, or an Android *Card*, or a
Photo/Camera *Card* that would have an OS preinstalled which adapts to
the base units it's plugged into.

i'd be interested to hear people's thoughts on this.
