Congratulations on getting this far!

I like the fact that the computer cards are providing 2GB RAM and are thus 
competitive with various other solutions...


(I would add the EOMA68-A20 card to the list on that page, in combination with 
the Micro-Desktop, but I guess the SATA/Ethernet requirement rules it out for 
the time being: it's a list related to FreedomBox, after all. Maybe a future 
device would manage to get onto such a list, but such lists are obviously not 
the final word on whether an EOMA68-based solution would be usable for that 
particular application.)

I'm inclined to pledge for the Micro-Desktop and EOMA68-A20, but I'd be very 
interested in getting other cards as well, if the ones that were planned 
(jz4775, IC1T) made it onto the bill. The possibility of experimenting with 
different architectures, having a common platform in which to do it, is a 
considerable strength of the EOMA68 concept.

Good luck with reaching the target!
