"Me too".

It isn't about being better than Android, or free from being spied on or free
to choose, though all of that is valuable.

It is about having a toy to play with and to learn from - one that I can
actually use as well so there are concrete outcomes from my efforts.

That last bit is important.  I cannot imagine myself buying a nano-note or a
Spark because I cannot imagine what I would ever really use them.  Without 3G
the mobility is almost irrelevant to me, so the small size becomes just an
inconvenience.
