I read the article ......and very plaintively said: "Blimey !"......followed in turn by: "I think I'll wait till it's simpler !". But the concept is highly attractive.....hope it gets off the ground.

I think I finally understand what "blimey" means? Look at it this way: you can get your laptop redone with your favorite Arm distro and get a degree in dentistry in about the same period of time. It also will feel like going to the dentist and having root canal. How can you beat that? :)

Seriously, for the patient it's an interesting project.

The process described there is very similar to what I go through every time I set out to make a Bodhi image for a new ARM device.

Someone will eventually make easy-to-use images that users can simply dd onto an SD card in a couple easy steps (in fact I plan to get my hands on one of these eventually).
