Just out of curiosity, why is this posted here?

Please don't misunderstand me, I think that this is
interesting news and that it's important enough to be posted

But you do have to agree that this is not one of the
first places one thinks of when one wants to post a
non Linux-PPC news item, no?

*I assume that you are working for ShaoLin's marketing departement.

I'm with u 2, as interesting as this is, why is it here? I mean the only possible connection is that it uses Linux, but why would it interest us as it isn't on a PPC? Why would we be interested in something that uses a completly different CPU to our (new) machine?

Sorry, I am just confused!
