Linux Software for the Raspberry Pi is quickly moving forward. Beyond the several core Linux distros, another couple dozen systems are available, with NetBSD, FreeBSD, and Chromium imminently stepping into the mix. (Ubuntu will not join them as it requires ARMv7 and the Pi is ARMv6). Two dozen programming languages are available, including Python, Perl, Java, Ruby 1.9.2, BASIC, and more. Since the Pi is a full fledged ARM computer, it should run nearly any ARM app within its system requirements. See the RPi Wiki or Foundation website for more info.

completely ignoring the actual conversation about closed drivers and the sort of opportunities they're blocking.

I already took a part on that conversation and I've done that multiple times before, including pointing out all the fascinating possibilities cheap, low-power ARM - boards offer.

You made a non-comment and I called you on it. Congrats.

No, you just seem offended about the fact that someone would dare to say anything even slightly negative about one of these boards.
