iPad Air + Slackware + Arm?


Ciao Guys,

I am an happy owner of a 5 year old eeepc 1000h (yes, like AlienBob, wich lead me to slackware).

Recently I stumbled upon this guy's blog wich made me consider the cloud option. I don't really like to pay for a service like linode and I don't like the idea of having my important data managed by some one else. And yes, my eeepc is starting to get a little bit outdate and I would really like to travel light with the new ipad air.

So, my question is: what do you guy think about a machine like the trimslice pro running slackwarearm and connecting to it via ssh?

Do you think I would feel a great downgrade of performance compared to my eeepc? I mostly use emacs,perl, shell, ecc.

I was thinking that a machine like the trimslice could still be somehow portable (at least, it would not be heavier than my eeepc, but I could leave it connected at home and ssh to it from the ipad).

Long sort short: do you think that a cloud solution like trimslice pro+ipad+ssh could be better than an eeepc 1000h with slackware 14.0 ?

The idea sound fascinating to me, but I don't know if in reality it would still be nice..

Seems like a lot of unnecessary complication. Get a high-end Android tablet like the Nexus 10, and install Slackware ARM via a chroot. No need for additional hardware or network connectivity, you can run Slackware right on the hardware alongside Android.

Of course I could buy a something like the lenovo yoga and get linux installed on it, but it's not what I was thinkg of. I posted here because it's the cloud thing that's interestes me. And I was wandering about the experience of a small server coupled with a nice client like the ipad. Anyway, I bought a utilitepro and a galaxy note 10.1: I am waiting for both of them. Will keep you updated about the whole thing.
