The BeagleBone Black includes a 2GB on-board eMMC flash memory chip. It comes with the Angstrom distribution factory pre-installed. You can flash new operating systems including Debian, Ubuntu, Android, and others. The following pages will illustrate the steps to getting the latest of each type of supported distribution onto the on-board eMMC.
In addition to the eMMC, you can also boot directly from a microSD card similarly to the original BeagleBone.
We’re starting out with instructions for Angstrom, but hope to add to it in the future! If you don’t have a BeagleBone Black yet, you can add your name to the list to be notified for when we get them back in stock.

playing with small microcontrollers is a for interest (hobby)
having to go through download this that and the other isn’t really learning or instructive when you have a ubuntu sd
card I can order for beaglebone black let me know ver 12.10 or 13.04 also manuals and labs would be of interest to buy this is for fun not meant to be work (if I wanted work I would go and make overtime)not everybody is an IT genius who enjoy patch frustration
