Presumably it would be some derivative of Debian then? (I'm assuming 
this because Debian has an ARM port).

Still it's got to be good, the price of these units is constantly coming 
down.  Give it a year or two and they'll be like portable DVD players, 
available all over the place for under £100.

If it was under £100 I'd buy one for the kids to use.
