hobby target board - please recommend

Hi Linux enthusiasts,

I am looking to practice embedded software development on a hobby board at home. I want to practice writing device drivers and perform board bring-up using U-boot. About device drivers: Ethernet, NAND Flash, USB, I2C, serial I think having a ARM or MIPS processor is the good choice.

Any recommendations for such a hobby target board?

I use an Atmel NGW100, its a great general purpose embedded system with a lot of documentation available.

Hope this helps
