If the n810 is lightyears ahead of other devices, that just accentuates how 
far behind the other devices are.

Yeah, I did get the console.  And a penguin while booting.  Not much else…

Well frankly I do not even want to run vi.  I prefer nano for a handheld 
device.  And "apt-get install nano" fails with "couldn't find package nano".  
So I have to build it myself.  Wait, aren't we talking about running 
*Debian*?  And what is Debian without its thousands of packages, ready to be 
installed with a simple command?
