Vaguely similar is more like it.

Look at the recent thread about the CHIP on freebsd-arm at .

That board has a quarter of the RAM, and porting to a BSD is a bit more
of a chore.  It also isn't likely to be sustainable as a business, since
the manufacturing cost is $16 while it's selling for $9.  They intend to
make money off peripherals, etc.

More like a toy to let your cat play with IMHO.
