Yes, that's really cool indeed.

But I have to correct you're subject line: its not me who made  this,
it's  we  all  here  contributing  to  this  and  other Free Software
projects. Without such a great community neither U-Boot nor Linux nor
the ELDK would exist. I'm just a small piece in this puzzle,  and  as
some  of you know all too well I'm too often more a bottleneck than a

So all I can say is: Thanks to all of you folks who contribute to all
these projects and make such things possible with Free Software.

Best regards,

There are two kinds of people, those who do the work  and  those  who
take  the  credit.  Try  to  be  in  the  first  group; there is less
competition there.                                    - Indira Gandhi
