I do have a SimPad SL4, but decided not to install Linux on it, because
the current distributions do not play nicely with my SanDisk ConnectPlus
CFcard (WiFi + 128 mb flash -- in Linux either the WiFi part is
recognized, or the memory part, but not both at the same time). Windows
CE 4.1 recognizes it without any problems.

At the moment, my SimPad serves as an ebook-reader for (encrypted) books
from Peanut Press. eReader will not release a Linux version of their
reader software, so another reason not to switch to Linux.

I did promise Paul to look into running Einstein on my "regular" tablet:
a Fujitsu Siemens Stylistic 3400, but it will have to wait until after
the summer, when our move to Thailand is completed.
