gobby worked great on an N900 for me, although on an 800x480 screen closing
useless subwindows is vital.

Heck, I quickly learned that even using a laptop outside of a hacklab is a
waste of time.  A laptop's keyboard is too small for comfortable use -- and
it seems to me that once you get out of the comfort zone, it doesn't matter
if it's even smaller so N900's one is almost as good.  Of course, the usual
caveat about Nokia's default layout being worthless: you need to redefine
it to get basics like Esc, PgUp, [, {, < and so on.

I did not bother backporting it to Maemo and just ran it from a Debian
chroot.  Worked fine.
