Linux can now display stuff on Tungsten E display

TamsPalm reported about Linux quite some time ago. However, Romain Goiyet now received a contribution from another user which enabled them to get the Tungsten E's LCD to display some stuff. Here is a screenshot, click it to see it in a bigger form:

As it looks nopw, Linux really is feasible for the Tungsten E. We may have it working in a very short time. Meanwhile, visit Mr. Goyets page:
http://palmtelinux.sourceforge.net/
Or, visit some TamsPalm articles about Linux:
Linux on tungsten E-original annnouncement
Linux for I-Pods
PalmOS-Licencees, Linux hackers are your friends

What do you think?

via Romain Goyet, thank you for the hint

Linux on a device that is out of production for quite some time and that will never ever BOOT Linux!

Dear Mr. Anonymous,
please understand that this blog has moderated comments. All TE Linux announcements up to now were flamed-this is not acceptable.
While I can understand your concerns about the choice of the TE as a dead architecture, it still is better than nothing and may activate further research.
BTW-Linux already boots IMHO...
Best regards
Tam Hanna
