Is there an alternative?

What happened to the Hammerhead Kangaroo? Was that ever any good? Haven't heard anything about it since initial release.


-Tim-
One of my coworkers (who does gravel) has a Karoo...It is a completely different computer since release (he pre-ordered IIRC) is what he has to say about it. Reminds me of Wahoo's OS which was a rough buggy effort in the RFLKT but by the time the Bolt rolled out was polished and worked great. DCR or someone should do an updated review of from what he says. I think the price is now down to $399US.

As for the ROAM, with Wahoo's history it'll be bug patched fairly quickly
