Me too - just broke down and ordered one today.  Now I need to dig up
my 8GB SD card that appears to be misplaced.  Fyi, the latest
"Raspberrian" Linux image based on Debian Wheezy has AX25 support
compiled in.  Ray, VK2TV has it working on his Raspberry Pi based
IGATE, http://www.findu.com/cgi-bin/find.cgi?call=vk2tv-4.  N1MJF was
on the Xastir mailing list back in June and had Xastir running on a
Raspberry Pi using the Arch Linux image, but I'm not sure if that
kernel supports AX25.
