Raspberry Pi with Java, a great combo

Here's a cool new embedded $35 Linux/ARM computer called the Raspberry Pi. Now, what's better with Raspberry Pi than Java? Java ME CDC that is, downloaded when you get the OJEC 1.1 Linux/ARM binary free from: here and have it with your Raspberry Pi.

See:

http://www.engadget.com/2012/01/11/raspberry-pi-begins-production/

Here's a quote:

 [T]he Raspberry Pi Model B has 
 officially begun production. Unlike 
 the Model A, this $35 computer 
 board features both an Ethernet 
 adapter and 256MB of RAM (rather 
 than 128MB).
A delicious combo!

Comments:

Even more delicious would be the full JavaSE -- the Pi can handle it. OpenJDK zero works, but I'd like to see Oracle put more resources into releasing something for embedded devices than can run a modern servlet container.

Regarding full Java SE on the Raspberry Pi:

Raspberry Pi Model B (256MB RAM): Very tight for the typical Java SE heap requirements, but doable if your app is small.

Raspberry Pi Model A (128MB RAM): You are better off with Java ME CDC (OJEC 1.1), not Java SE on this smaller model.

It makes my mouth watery.

Sounds cool, but even for Model B, I think 256M is not enough for some great applications.
