ATNGW100 arrives!

Which is the cheapest Single Board Computer running GNU/Linux? If LinuxDevices.com is to be believed, it is the Atmel ATNGW100 based on a processor having a brand new architecture called the AVR32.

I ordered a board from Digikey on 25th Jun - this was my first experience sourcing a part directly from a US distributor. Luckily, there were no problems at all and I got it delivered home by the local post office today - there was a duty of Rs.500.

I have a few interesting ideas to implement using my NGW100 - one or two will be for fun and one will be for profit! Keep watching this blog!

PS: Justin says Digikey has increased the price from $70 to $89
