This looks like a candidate distribution for a wee beasty like the Soekris Engineering Net4501 appliance.

    Another a non e-mouse cow herd touched on this; with a larger CF card, does one really even need these puny repackaged BSD's? What's to prevent one from running a standard OpenBSD install on the soekris hardware?

    Moreover, have any out there had any experience running OpenBSD on some of the other interesting looking biscuit/sbc/pc104-ish/whatever hardware?

    In particular something like this looks intriguing (not to knock the Soekris bits, which also look pretty dope):

    Can anyone comment on their own experiences with this? Whether it's running a normal OBSD install on the Soekris hw, or other?
