The machine came originally with WinCE.NET preinstalled, which is totally useless for me as there is no software for it. Linux is the only way out and makes it a perfect project for the weekend.
The challenge will be not only to get all the hardware to work (including the TV tuner) but also the handwriting recognition as I have not seen so far any decent software for this application. I guess soft keyboard will do.
I guess I will post more about it later.
Mood: Ready for the weekend
