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

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.
