    Nokia N900 Or Openpandora

    Windows CE drivers for the OMAP are freely available on Texas Instruments web site, FYI. As for "why Windows CE", outside of Flash playback (which has already been covered) I can think of a few other reasons. Silverlight Microsoft Office WMV, WMA playback (legally)...

    Could Sd Cards, In Theory, Be Used As Ram In A Linux Environment?

    I was thinking in more generalized terms that there are enough differences between an X86-based computer and the ARM-based pandora that we should be carefull about making too many assumptions about the pandora not needing a swap space just because most laptops and desktops don't.

    How Do I Get Out Of This?
