> The trouble with Pi is the can corrupt their boot disk...

As stated though, you can knock that out with a read-only root FS (what I do on most embedded systems) or a small battery backup. I've seen several Li-Ion based UPS boards (hats? plates? shields? I don't know what they're called) for the Raspberry Pi that, along with either a script or a kernel driver, will gracefully shut the Pi down when either the battery is low or just whenever main power has been offline for a predetermined time.

I think someone already mentioned it would be cool to get IXR to help and do something for the VCFED blog about it.
