And just recently the Linksys NSLU2 has beta software with AX25 packet.
A fully open Linux box at about 1/2 the price of a KPC3+..
Of course, I don't think the NSLU2 has an audio interface(I suppose you
could use a USB sound card, or equivalent), so it doesn't support the modem
functionality of the KPC3+. I suspect it also draws a bit more power than
Nifty thing, though...
