As an electrical engineer working on the development of automotive micro controllers (well, too small to run Linux) I decided to widen my view also on ARM and embedded Linux.
My project is an Audio Streaming Client, based on the MPD so the APF28 with it's SPDIF out is a perfect choice.
With zero experience in embedded Linux, I got my "Hello World" out of my stereo speaker a week after I received my APF28_dev.
Meanwhile the whole MPD is up and running over ETH cable. Now I am fighting to get my Netgear WNA1100 WLAN stick to work. (OK, I could spend 10 Euro on a supported one, but I try to be a good sports)
Wish I had a linux kernel above 2.6.3 running! The next one has the WNA1100 driver contained in the kernel - with the current one I am just gathering experience with patching ;-)
Up to now I could not manage to get the 3.6.2 Vanilla kernel to boot as described on the wiki page.
My mother language is German, but I can also read French (ecrire est un petit plus difficile). If you have any questions, suggestions or ideas how to upgrade the APF28 kernel , please feel free to contact me
