Linux PDA/tablet running Wine/PowerShell


Hi

Can anyone recommend a tablet device (if one exists) that can run PowerShell (via WINE) or something..

The end result is I need to RMI on Windows servers from a portable device and would prefer to use a Linux based system but the problems are numerous (x86/other).

Is it achievable?

Thanks

Kevin

Wine (and certainly windows) needs an x86 cpu, and an arm port is pointless unless the windows programs are also recompiled. You would probably be challenged for ram.

rdesktop?

Question: If PowerShell is your default shell on the Windows systems (or can easily be started from your default shell), wouldn't a simple SSH client be sufficient for that task?

Business_kid has a point about ARM based systems (although that me less a factor in the future with emulation). So, if you're talking about a Linux based tablet with X86 and sufficient processing power, you're going to be having to look at some of the higher end & newer tablets coming out (mostly Win8 models). That means a price tag in the $1200+ range.

My x86 tablets are convertibles. But they are also Atom-based systems with just "good enough" power.

TobiSGD has a point,... unless you need one of the features PowerShell has that another shell doesn't... See;
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compari...command_shells

PS: I do not know how objective the above link is in making comparisons.
