I think getting to the next gen card is really important.  The specifics of this card are really not a big deal in my opinion.  It's already a bit outdated, and gets more so with each delay.

But that's fine.  The big opportunity here is once this card and associated housings is actually in people's hands, then they can experience the upgrade process with the next card comes out.

That's the whole point of EOMA68 in the first place.  To modularize your computing so upgrades are cheaper, easier and less wasteful.

I think people are getting too caught up on how to make the a20 the perfect card, but that misses the big picture.  This isn't a one off single board computer, it's a bootstrap of an ecosystem.  And rather than try to make the first board perfect, it's more important to just get the first board done and move on to the second and third boards to really get the ecosystem going.
