    Embedded Linux & Embedded Java

    Hey all, I recently lost my job. Many of the job descriptions I am seeing are asking for embedded Linux or embedded Java. I was wondering what I can do to do some practice projects at home using these. What kind of test board would I need? Thanks for any advice in advance.

    Maybe take a look at Raspberry Pi?

    //{
    	if (a) do { f( b); } while(1);
    	else   do { f(!b); } while(1);
    //}

    Newark expects to have 100 to ship by the 4th of October. I think this would be a great way to get started.

    I have the quick start board, and it works pretty well, but it's a little quirky. for example, it doesn't seem to power up unless the VGA is disconnected. once powered on, you can connect the VGA and it works fine. I'm not sure if this is expected behavior, but that's how I got mine to work.

    I've heard great things about the BeagleBoard and the PandaBoard, but I haven't had a chance to try either one yet.
