This is rather interesting. I didn't know that java is available on
mips. Are you referring to java (sun, gcj, other?) or javascript? I
think even flash is not avaiable (the libflash is not enough developed
to be used widely). But: is gnome or openoffice usable? Did you try
lenny? Did you try, by any chance, the standard Debian kernel from etch,
lenny, sid?

Moreover I read that the machine is provided with 256Mb of RAM. It
should be possible to use 512Mb of RAM changing the kernel from
mipsel/32bit to mipsel/64bit. Is this correct? Do you use it with 1Gb

Right. I read it is comparable to a pentium4 @ 1.4Ghz. Currently I use
powerpc @864Mhz, so I think I will gain some speed :-)

Thanks for all your info.
