  • LinuxHardware.org: Agenda VR3 Developer Edition Preview (2001-03-31 20:03:55)
    "The Agenda is very well designed, and a joy to use. It is great fun to have a handheld running the same OS as my desktop. It really is Linux. There is a complete set of GNU like tools, which is actually Busybox's "Swiss Army Knife" of tools in a single executable. It still feels the same, due to careful aliasing. By default, the standard distribution runs a very small footprint shell, ash. But Bash 2 is installed and you can easily configure it to be your default shell by changing the /etc/passwd file."

    "What is Killustrator? Well, Killustrator is supposed to be a vector-based graphics design product that you can use on the Linux platform.
