Thanks for the heads up  Andy 8) .

Did anyone got more than a "Thanks, we'll be in touch when we have more to share"?

After filling out the first form I got a response asking for my postal address "...so we can send you your board".   Sounded all rather positive but after giving postal address; twitter account (?);  information on the type of project I plan to build;  and IDEs I've used I was greeted with  "Thanks, we'll be in touch when we have more to share. "  It left me wondering if I'd been given the brush-off for not being .Net enough or perhaps they aren't quite ready to ship.  It was just an odd change of tone, but either way it was worth a punt :-)

I've had an email that it said all the boards have been allocated and recipients have been contacted by email.  I wasn't among the lucky ones, but it was worth a shot.   

Anyone with better news?
