Hunter Davis is one DIY genius, as he has rolled out yet another hack for the Zipit, this time round running Linux kernel 2.6.29 with Fluxbox alongside with mouse support, audio, and Wi-Fi functionality. You will need to flash instructions to load the kernel straight into the Zipit before you can proceed any further, where a partitioned microSD card will function as the filesystem and swap. It isn’t as effective (by far) as a netbook, but at least this 2.8″ QVGA display device isn’t too expensive at around $40.
