This video will show you how wonderful and powerful the JLime Linux distro for HP Jornada's and some other HPCs is. You can make your old HP Jornada be a lot more awesome and have all the applications from a desktop. It's stable, fast and it's full capable of internet connectivity.

I've ran a mobile hotspot on my Motorola Milestone and connected my Jornada to it and it worked so well and stable. This is the future of tablets!

nicely done. i noticed that there was some lag when you used abiword, (this question is open to anyone who can answer) given that it is a 720, would maybe installing on a 728 take care of some of that lag or do you think that's a CPU bottleneck we're seeing there?

Nice, nice video, nathanpc. I've run jlime on a j-720 that wouldn't calibrate in CE, but did fine in linux--strange.

Abiword, if I remember correctly, wasn't *too* laggy, but its toolbar was hard-coded; you couldn't hide it, so it took up a lot of screen. But I shared directories b/w jlime and the desktop, thought Dillo was great, and while sylpheed is a bear to set up (its setup screens don't fit the j screen, so there's a lot of off-screen work), I love that email program. I use it on rtfm's 3mx Ultra MIPS netbook linux.

Thanks for your work,
Jake
