Oh first post! :-)

My Work are currently using REDHAT Linux on a x86 to cross compile code onto a Intel 400MHz Xscale development board in order to develop ARM code in our future handheld products.

I'll certainly mention to my Boss that there is a Linux port available for the Iyonix PC. But I can't see any real advantage to our programmers having a real Xscale Desktop PC running Linux or RISC OS to develop our ARM code.

I've no idea how much this Intel development board costed. It's got a cute rotatable LCD screen and compact flash cards, etc. Would a Iyonix PC be any cheaper or offer any advantage over this Intel dev board?

I imagine a lot of Xscale developers are currently buying this Intel Dev. board as they've never really had much of an alternative.
