<dodging arm question>

meh this site looks pretty sketchy imho.  i have idea what they are
talking about in regards to no other hardware allowing you to run your
own kernel (see: "Hardware Companies, Freedom, and Privacy").

at least they are using a decent video card and OK components - although
i hazzard support for RMA'ing components will be "fun".

also..only supporting their linux distribution?  doesn't seem very open
to me...
