Re: [nslu2-general] NSLU2 - how long will it last?
- I believe that the bigger interest that Linksys has for its WRT54G (to reduce it's cost / improve performance) is due to its high volume sale compared to NSLU2.
The 7000 extra sales that nslu2-linux community added it's probably insignificant and cannot change it's fate as a low sale volume product.
That's just my opinion, but if you followed the story of the redesigned Kuro Box you realize that even companies that embraced the idea of providing a development platform for their "hacker" community, finally put the redesign project of their development platform to the afterburner in favor of the commercial NAS platform.

(thanks to our project), and a fully supported target for Debian Etch,
and soon to be supported by OpenWRT, I think the exciting times are just
beginning for the Slug ...
