Pandaboard we ordered arrived. We are testing the performance of the board for development with GNU/Linux. The distribution is a Ubuntu Maverick.
The performance is not very promising, specially the SD card interface to the Omap4 processor.
We managed to setup the three environments we use to develop: openFrameworks, Processing and PureData. With oF the board reached 4-5 fps analyzyng blobs from a webcam at 320x240@30; however, without rendering the images on screen, the same analysis can reach 17fps.
