I have revently bought a Verdex Pro XM4-bt and a robostix to go along with my iCreate robot form Roomba and in reading the mailing list and poking around I am reading about the OE / bitbake and the buildroot options for creating the OS for the Gumstix.

Are these mutually exclusive between the Overo and Verdex lines?  Is there a benefit / ease of use for using one over the other? 

I am running Ubuntu on a laptop with a port replicator so I can get a serial connection out to the iCreate, but I also have a USB adapter for the Robostix so I can kermit into it as well as a Serial interface connector so I can eventually connect the Gumstix/Robostix to the iCreate.
