It's *significantly* quicker to do a build on a qemu-emulated ARM system
running on a nice modern x86 system than it is to do it on any of the ARM
systems I've ever had (although, admittedly, I've not tried any of the
modern shiny GHz+ ARM systems).

Also, I think this is about the cheapest ARM dev board around:


Supposedly very Linux-friendly, etc.  NFI how good/bad/otherwise it is.  The
lack of SATA ports has been commented upon, but for a dev board, it should
be OK.
