Adventures with a SUSE Linux-Powered OQO Palmtop
SUSE in the Palm of Your Hand
Would SUSE even install? Would the tablet work? What are the challenges? Where would you use Linux on such a small package? Would Linux techies even be interested?
All good questions that you'd probably like answered.
This is my adventure of putting SUSE Linux on the little micro PC. I also carried the machine around the recent LinuxWorld Conference in Boston, for a few days.
To say the OQO/SUSE Linux combination is a "geek magnet" is to overstate the obvious.
