Oh definately, but for rebuilding .debs repeatedly, a 1500MHz intel
proc with gobs of memory beats a 200MHz ARM with only 32megs of
memory, hands down.

As mentioned 8minutes vs. (I'm guessing) 40 minutes(?)+ is much
nicer.

BTW: The Embedian.org site hasn't been updated since October of last

There is activity on the mailing list, though.
