These are great news. Thank you for doing that.

I hope you do not mind that I am throwing in one more idea for
marketing. Seeing that you play with XBMC [3] maybe you could add things
to your notes that would be interesting for the multimedia/XBMC folks.
They try to feature a system every Friday (like [4]) and your system
running coreboot definitely suits that series in my opinion.

We just should make sure that the information where to buy flash chips
and instructions on how to build an image or even provide a test image.

I am sorry if I wrote the obvious and you already thought about this.

Thanks again for all your work!
