Actually it works right now thanks to (mainly) Robert Millan's amazing 
efforts. It's also a pleasure to work on because of the keyboard. Cons
for getting one might be:


The wireless driver is not the very best and might have limited range
(mine only goes up to about 8 meters), but this might change as the driver
matures over time.

Reasons for getting one is that gNewSense officially supports it (through the 
mips-l project) , and the gNewSense community has (relatively speaking) a lot 
of users of this architecture.
