"I saw this on dealnews one day and really liked the idea of this little device for $25. But I read that you had to use pogoplugs software to access it. Now I understand requiring the software to access my pogo from off my home network, but I didnt understand why I needed to install their software when the pogoplug is literally sitting on top of my desktop. I found archlinuxarm.com and they are doing something interesting. They have developed a bootloader that runs on the pogoplug and runs linux. Why would you do this you may ask? Well I wanted it to run a home media server for as cheap as possible. This is the device I was looking for. It uses barely any power, unlike any other server out there. A NAS is going to set you back a few hundred dollars for exactly the same thing as this pogoplug running linux. I set up a samba server, which can be mapped on any computer/xbox/ps3 in my house. The pogoplugs OS is running off a 2gb flash drive with a 250gb 2.5" hard drive attached for storage. Anyone who is familiar with linux and is looking for a home media server, I highly recommend this device."
