My roommate has one. He likes it a fair bit. He also just got his BeagleBone Black the other day as well.

yeah, but it's about as powerful as my phone lol (graphics aside)....but it's has so many more features, you just can't compare.

I believe phones also use arm architeture

Pretty cool. But I wouldn't use it as an XBMC device if you have a huge media library. Its just too slow.

Last I heard it can support an NES emu, which is pretty cool, but I have no use for one.

I ordered one a year ago and despite it coming into stock and being charged the $30 or whatever for it, it never shipped. Multiple calls to confirm said everything was fine with the card and my order..but nope. Never got a refund either.

Eventually lost interest/stopped caring. After like almost a year or something of being on a waiting list, interest was gone.

I was toying with the idea of getting one and loading up a bunch of classic games and getting USB controllers for the old consoles.

One of the guys a year ahead of me in school purchased a bunch of these and is doing some neat parallel computing things. The concept is beyond me, but I'm going to take his word for it.

I also saw a youtube video of someone building their own arcade cabinet for cheap and running an arcade emulator.

All in all, it looks cool, but I just don't have enough time to invest into it. Maybe next year.
