Re: VIA is discontinuing the LN10000EG motherboard
- Thanks for your work on this Dave.
I had been trying to source a LN10000EG recently. Having just fired up my first Pi, I am excited by the prospects of its development.
It may not be the all-in-one computer, but even if I had to use 2 (or 3) of them for special purposes, its still smaller & cheaper than ATX motherboards.
If the Pi turns out to be as reliable as other IRLP systems I've run it will be a welcome move forward.
I sent a donation to IRLP to help with this development.
Thanks again Dave.
After running IRLP 24/7/365 since 2001 I'm excited for this new era of IRLP.
