I am. It's a cool little board. I got mine at MCM Electronics.
I've got it running with wifi and a swap file on a 1 GB usb stick and
another 64 GB usb stick for storage.
The one drawback, for me, is that vlc runs poorly on it. From what I
understand, vlc needs to be modified to use the gpu for hardware
acceleration. I'm hoping that will be done soon since I use vlc for
streaming and that would make it simple for me.
