I have one of these. It is fun but mostly a toy.

Can’t wait to see somebody build a Squeezebox from one of these!

Phil Jones would like to disagree:

[…] here it is running Emacs, with a Racket REPL via Geiser.

I have to say, this has been the dream for a long time … a cheap, portable device that runs Linux, has Emacs, git, rsync etc. And I can actually write and run Lisp on it.

He clearly hasn’t spent much time typing on its chiclet keyboard.

It has a keyboard / screen that can be used in emergencies, but can also be accessed via USB-serial and PuTTY from any old Windows PC

Yeah, that’s a great pocket computer.

“You want to use this pocket computer? Well, serial connect it to another computer and then terminal into it!”

It’s a fun little machine but mostly for playing pico-8 games.
