Then there's the USB Audio issue, so that you can connect to a
CHU receiver. USB Audio apparently works reasonably well under
Linux, but not under FreeBSD. You may be able to resolve this with a
Mini-PCI card to handle the audio input, but I don't know whether or
not this has been proven.
Don't get me wrong, I love Soekris. But I think that people
should be informed of the issues, both pro and con.
