    Sailfish OS on Pyra?

    Each use case is different of course, but me personally, I would already be a very happy camper with vim, wyrd, ipython, ssh and mercurial-hg all in the command line. Dual and even triple booting has been demonstrated on the Gemini PDA, so that might also be an adaptive solution to varying...

No square brackets [ ], nor accolades { } for programmers, Javascript, CSS, Markdown, LaTeX, ... No backtick ` which is amply...

    Got displays, looking for keymats
