I always think about using the machines as either 'desktops' or build
machines, so anything that is of low spec doesn't interest me at all -
especially when there are better machines out there.

The dockstar has no RTC and only 128MB RAM.  IMO if you were going to
spend any money on a Kirkwood machine, buy a SheevaPlug.  More costly but it's *supposed* to be
developed on so it's completely open (rather than sold as an appliance for
a particular application and having to be hacked) and has 512MB RAM.
