BeagleBoard is really a very much remarkable stepping stone in the field of embedded system for the entire electronics community by TI. As the embedded technology evolves it will not be a single person's ability and task to make the board design working and developing the drivers, and this kind of open source development boards are helping a lot. Thanks for the design to all who have participated in the design and development of the board and community.
