Well, makes sense to me.
Thus this is a 3008 (or 2001-N or B) under 2001's skin. After all is
not bad since I have the best (worst?) of both worlds: a chicklet
keyboard and a rom that manages disk drives.
Is it true what I read: that the original rev1 was a very close
derivative of the Kim-1 with video attached?

When Scott Granneman approached the FreeBSD booth at LinuxWorld his
first question was, "So, what's FreeBSD doing here at LinuxWorld?"
Without losing a beat, the FreeBSD guy responded, "Actually, in an
alternate universe, I'm attending BSDWorld and there's one Linux
booth. However, my transporter malfunctioned 'cause it was running
Linux, and so here I am."

Best nerd one-liner I've heard at the show
