Hello Bob,

Thanks for the information.  I had questions on how to install linux on
the thing.  Alot easier than the XBox.

The web page indicates the video options may be limited.  No VGA and the
HDMI requires monitors with HCP.

Likely Terra is low on the allocation list since they are not a major
game retailer.
