+1 on the question as I'd like to use these devices for a variety of 
things (stratum 1 NTP server with a USB GPS attached, cheap and cheerful 
low power file/web server, media box maybe) and I'm far happier with 
FBSD than Linux.

For firewall use remember that the Model B has only one ether socket 
(and the Model A has none). Anyone know how good USB ether adapters are? 
I've never used one.

Of course, all this presumes you can actually get one, which has proved 
difficult - all 10,000 units in the first batch went in a few minutes. :-(
