Ok, don't get aggavated by this question, I am a LINUX fan even though I
am not vey profficient at it (yet)...
But, I am curently running windows95 on my PC110, I run Red Hat 4.2 on
my desktop but haven't really started using it yet....
I am just curious as to what the real benefits are to running LINUX on a
PC110, I like the whole idea & am very tempted to do it, but will I gain
any 'real' benefits from using it on my PC110, I know the benefits of
having all the command line tools from the shell, but I guess this more
of a Xwindows question.... Are there any PIM's for X windows, will I
still be able to use the dialer & phone functions?
I guess I'm just a little intimidated by X windows, but I am not all
that crazy of WIN95 on my PC110 and was just unsure if switching the
PC110 to all LINUX would be a benefit more than WIN95.
I know Netscape & email are avaialble easily for LINUX, but how about
using the sound & APM functions...
