Raspberry pi ?

While I've never attempted Fiasco on an arm11 architecture, after a
quick glance at the code it seems that there is at least basic support
for Arm11 in there.
You'd still have to write the R-PI board support though. Keep in mind
that Fiasco does not have a USB stack by default, so you'd have to
write/port your own there. You'll also need to write an Ethernet driver,
or use the DDE kit to integrate the Linux driver in Fiasco.
Actually running Ruby once all the underlying kernel and BSP stuff is in
place should be relatively straight forward. I've ported several
libraries and applications in the past and the L4RE has pretty much
everything you need to do that.

Crazy? Perhaps... Fun - sure :-)
