So, I got this Yopy.

It is pretty fast, I am working on porting MAME, the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator, to it.

Well, I think you can run a variety of kernels on it, I guess. The documentation, which is in progress, explains how to activate the boot loader.

I have a Compaq PDA also that I bought used, it has CE 1.0, also, people have already been using Linux or other, alternate operating systems with it. It has a keyboard instead
of touchscreen.

So, I am waiting for Mac OS X to see how it is different.
