I've only lurked for the last few years since the software/distributions for my 5500 dried up but, in a moment of madness I've just bought one of these http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi...em=170273247758.

It's already got xp and office professional and was at a good price.

I thought that I could dual boot linux and replace my 5500 with it as my new toy.

Any comments?

You're not mad, charlie...but maybe just a bit nutz..... wink.gif

Anyway, you should hop over to the UMPCPortal.com forums where there's a WiBrain section for guys like you...


Have fun with your new toy....let us know how you like it....

BTW, there's a new WiBrain coming, b1e, I think that has Intel Atom CPU, so more horsepower, plus some with linux on it I think...

ugly as sin, but I have been tempted by this one as well.
Considered one of the best devices "Chippy" has ever used as still returns back to time and time again for its real life usefulness.
Good choice.
