I know, but hopefully there are way more than 1500 geeks out there

If I had a smartphone I could do all these things just by 
downloading a small program (instead of a full OS image), 
and change between them with no need to reboot.

This is a plus for somebody who wants to *build* a device 
and need a working base for it, not really for the end user.

It does not sell to end-users, it sells to geeks and proto-geeks 
who are interested in building stuff.
Also, it is cheap enough that people don't think twice 
before buying it even if they have no real use for it;
the NN probably is a bit borderline in this regard, 
(and the MilkyMist definitely above that limit for 
most households, unluckily).
