Will this board take the place of say a netCF? I'm willing to wait since it might take me 8-10 weeks to get wifi working any other way (no time/little experience). But I would also like to add storage.  The perfect board (for me) would be a wifi/flash board. CF storage is nice but bulky. Or maybe a flash board with 92 pin hirose top and bottom to go between the gumstix and the wifi/whatever boards.

Keep up the good work and good luck.

Very roughly?  I'd guess at least 8 weeks -- mainly because we can't
comfortably order parts (in minimum batches of 1,000 units) until we
know for sure that the software is going to work; there's a lead time
on the part delivery, and that lead time counter will only start
ticking after we get the software and confirm it can work.  And the
ETA on turning around the chinese-whispers local rep->taiwan->marvell-
>taiwan->local rep->gumstix process to get the actual code in our
hands to work with is likely to take 2-3 weeks I'd guess, best case.
I'm working hard on trying to bring that in, but I don't know how
much can be done there.  I found about 90% of the source code on
another manufacturer's website where they're redistributing the GPL
code that goes in their product -- but the source distribution they
put together is not complete -- it's missing 4 or 5 key headers
files, so we're back to needing those from Marvell.
