N810 as a real Linux machine

Now this 'box' is proving to be both a consumer internet tablet and a Linux machine:
  • consumer: instant messaging, great sound including podcasts, video etc. I have now got maximise window and zoom hardware buttons off pat and scrolling by pointer makes browsing faster
  • linux: shell, getroot, apt-get, ssh. Used ssh to install stuff ona nother machine
Great stuff!

A comprehensive set of internet type applications, with the browser able to cope with most formats.
