I was thinking about this...technically there is, it's just called 
'Android' LiveCode.

Android LiveCode and ARM Linux will have a common linux-based core. Of 
course, I have no idea how tightly Android LiveCode is welded to 
Goggle's extensions, so maybe it's almost as significant as a new 
platform anyway...

But I'd *love* to be able to sell to a customer a "throw-away" computer. 
  Buy the software for $40 and we'll throw in the computer to run it on! 
  Open-source, and unlocked.

Once the RPi foundation proves that it can ramp up to meet demand, I'd 
be rather worried if I were a computer manufacturer.

If the hardware isn't going to cost anything, where are they going to 
make any money at all?
