If you are basing your project on the Olimex board, that is different. Clearly the Olimex board is more economical, I think it even has better tempurature specs. Using Freescales "reference design" however means you will have a lot of documentation available from Freescale or from several other places. The various embedded linux builds will have more info on the freescale design than the olimex design. There will also likely be details about flash layout for different devices. For a beginner you are starting at one of the hardest places, it is best to copy someone else's work. BTW booting from SD cards is much faster than booting from (SPI) flash.
