Didn't see this until today, but apparently people on slashdot were wondering the same thing I did about this little bugger... way back in June:

That would make a perfect little ICS, web, or FTP server.

hmmmm.... a cluster of those would look nice in my PC room. Grin

RE nifty NimbleV5 ... devil's in the details!
1. On their "where to buy" webpage, the header
word in large font is misspelled as "micorosystems".
Not impressive.
2. That page lists 3 purchase sites. 1 site seemed
not to carry the product. The other 2 did not off
an upgrade option from 128meg RAM.
Excellent review -- but the demon devil struck it down!

Hello steppec, welcome...

I was somewhat surprised to visit the Nimble site right now and see that not only has their distribution not grown, but it has actually shrunk since the review was published! I figured the sponsor, Logic Supply, would at least still be offering it, as they were pretty high on the device, but I didn't see it on their virtual shelves. Perhaps more people share my opinion that its a novel little gadget, but really not practical, economical, or flexible.

Besides, there are new mini pcs out that are leaps and bounds ahead of the nimble:
