After reading macemoneta's excellent review of the N800 on linuxquestions I decided to purchase the unit.
The unit looks great, but the user's manual is b*o*r*i*n*g and says nothing about how one can use the N800 as a mini-Debian. How can I get a terminal? How can I edit /etc/apt/sources.list? Where can I get SSH and a good editor (something like gedit or for example). Is there some documentation online on how to squeeze the most out of this unit?
The PDF reader sucks (there is no way to get him to go to the next page in the fullscreen mode). Can I get xpdf?
One more thing: can I write a small script for iptables or install a firewall? Can I install nmap?
my first impressions are very good except for one thing which really bothers me: the white color on the screen is somewhat pinkish. and there seems to be no way to change hue/saturation/gamma/contrast etc...
