Was just wondering if you'd gotten it via a download from Amazon. Amazon seems to be surprisingly open with this release. I know they've posted source and firmware, already.

Any easy guide to run a plain linux version
I was wondering if I can run a simple linux version up. The form factor and cost makes it a great candidate to replace some Raspberry Pi where more processing is required.

Thoughts?

You would have to wait until it's rooted, and the bootloader is unlocked for recovery but it should not be difficult to build from source for it. I believe Ubuntu targets the Krait SOC.

it looks pretty similar to inforce ifc6410 single board computer.. fedora w/ custom kernel and rebuild of latest mesa for gfx drivers, and you should be good to go:

https://github.com/freedreno/freedreno/wiki/Fedora

I guess same should work for ubuntu/debian/whatever.. basically all you need, if the distro doesn't already have it, is mesa 10.1 (or later preferred for more fps and features), xf86-video-freedreno, libdrm.. and of course a rebuilt kernel
