    Yeah I got one I haven't really started using it yet, will probably start doing python programming soon though. Might buy another one to use as a retro game console.

    Got a nice case for it, some heat sinks on the chips to keep 'em cool, a power switch (Kickstarter funded) and a little 7" monitor that I got from Adafruit.

    Yeah, with MusicBox to stream Spotify and Soundcloud to my stereo.
    Thats why APT-X support is not that important to me.

    Yes - we have a couple and we attached one to a TV to play videos over the LAN.

    You know they are used a lot for controllers of bitcoin mining rigs - because they use so little power and the whole point of bitcoin mining is to specialise the hardware to produce max money per minimum electricity. So those of you who put it down don't realise what a great power/performance ratio!

    I used it with XBMC on my TV. But it turned out to be a bit too weak for my purposes. So now I will be using it to learn some programming. Apparently it's pretty nice for that purpose.
