The First Community Gumstix Website

Zach Welch has created the first community sponsored site in support of the 'Stix.' He has much better photos than mine and lots of information on the kernel and a cleaner Linux distro.


He had Kernel 2.6.4 ready for the Gumstix six hours after release! Way to go Zach!


I showed my Gumstix off last night at Dorkbot ("people doing strange things with electricity") in San Francisco. There was an Electrical Engineer there from a major company who said that the board was completely modern. "That's the pitch we use at work." And with his company that was a strong endorsement.


Everyone also agreed that the daughter board was emminently hackable.


Things are just moving right along!
