Can you run Linux on the Samsung Q1 (or other UMPC) via Virtual PC? James says “Yes, but you won’t like it….” ;)
Craig Pringle tells you how to get more usage from a smaller screen. It’s a must read for any mobile device owners.
Matt mentions small screen challenges that can be overcome in Office 2007, ActiveWords and we discuss the Office ribbon as well as resizing the Tablet PC TIP.
Don’t forget that you can’t “hover” on a touchscreen Tablet PC: be sure to Google “floattip.exe”
The S60 Third Edition Catalog is updated with more third-party apps, courtesy of All About Symbian.
Added: Microsoft hotfix to improve battery life by addressing USB issues.
Freeware of the show: Earthcomber which has added new services including finding local graves?

  2. A non-gruesome reason to know where the cemeteries are in your location is when someone is doing family history research. If you visit an area where family used to live you can get some useful info on year of birth and other family members.

  3. Actually everNote offer their HWR for Linux but only a SDK. Unfortunately the integration into something like TIP is missing!

    About tweaking: actually I’m more tweaking on my Windows desktops because so many things I’m used to are missing or different from my Gnome desktop (where I even like the standard configuration).
