Hi all,
I wonder about what you are using your SIMpad for or want to use it for?

We could make some kind of an "what to do with your SIMpad after installing Angstrom FAQ or howto"

Your help is very appreciated.

best regards
mr nice

well I set up my SIMpad for surfing and x forwarding.

I removed the home partition, installed Angstrom X11, installed Minimo, removed dropbear and installed openssh. I now use minimo for quick browsing of any site (gmail, flickr, ebay), or x forwarding to run firefox, deluge or any other desktop app on the SIM.

Minimo is pretty stable - occasionally resets the machine (presumably when it runs out of memory) but manages ajax and complex sites very well. X forwarding is pretty good - don't expect to watch video or fluid flash animation but for full browser functionality and access to all the other desktop apps, it's great.

I've put a how to: x forwarding on the SIMpad if anyone else wants to try it.
