Filed under
Hardware

There's been no shortage of gloom and doom here in the Linux blogosphere lately, what with Fuduntu's demise, a fresh round of anti-FOSS FUD, and even criticisms of Linux distros' girth. So it was with particular joy that Linux bloggers received the news about the all-new BeagleBone Black.

"BeagleBoard.org on April 23 will officially announce a faster 1GHz version of its hackable, open-source BeagleBone SBC for only $45," read the report a day ahead of time from LinuxGizmos, and in no time at all every patron down at the blogosphere's Punchy Penguin Saloon was sitting up in rapt attention.

'Wow! Just Wow!'
