I've been playing around with a BeagleBone for the past week, and I've

written some drivers to make it easy to talk to a certain LCD panel 

I know Scott is working with the BB as well, and maybe others?
My code so far is at:

And a small blog post about the LCD controller is here:

Unlike on the Arduino, Perl seems like a decent language to work with on 
the 'bone.. Although I did break out into Inline::C for one part when 
driving the spidev device, since it meant I could copy-and-paste the 
ioctls from example C code :)
