   There has been a lot of discussion about physically small boards on the
Debian ARM list debian-arm at lists.debian.org
   Basically most previous boards have been designed for a single use, and
the expected huge production quantity easily justifies a lot of specific,
possibly machine code, development. Several people are trying to convince
company managements that it would be cheaper to use an off-the-shelf system
like Debian, but it would generally require a higher basic hardware spec and
therefore an increased cost per unit. Even if the increase in cost is
marginal, the total cost of a production run may be much higher.
