Up until my catastrophic u-boot and debug board failure (grr..) I had
been using my GTA01 for the last couple of weeks just fine as a
really, really nice little python development machine .. I got an
Apple Wireless Keyboard hooked up with it over bluetooth, and the
combination of a fine little keyboard wirelessly connected to the
GTA01 is indeed a very nice laptop replacement. With a little bit of
Terminal-font love, a well-integrated VNC client, and perhaps some
stability in the windowing department, for sure the GTA01 - and thus
the GTA02 - could function very nicely as a laptop replacement. I
really look forward to that eventuality, once I get a working and
stable GTA01 rig up and running again ..
Count me in for a 6-pack of GTA02's, while we're at it.
