The FOSDEM stand will be a good opportunity to attract new developers.
So the already existing developers should make the best out of this chance.

Yes, it is one paid preorder but the "Wishlisht" has around 50 entries. But
it is not clear how many will convert to real orders when we need the
money to start production.

Generally I find it is a good idea to port Ubuntu / Firefox OS. It should
not be really difficult since we have a kernel, development tools, Debian
already done. But it is still quite a challenge.

BTW: it should be possible to install/port standard (desktop) Ubuntu
since it runs on the BeagleBoard. Anyone with experiences to share?
