  • I tried to run the working Linux X.Org X server in NetBSD under Linux emulation, and with a symlink between /dev/console and /dev/tty5, it got as far as the mmap of video memory before it failed with a mysterious signal 11. Dang! Almost worked! Also, the keys on the Panasonic Toughbook are awkwardly small. I own an old Compaq Aero 4/25 which is an antique 486SX25 that's smaller than almost every other laptop I've seen. It's a little deeper, but it's just barely larger than a handbook format book, and it has tiny little keys. Well, the Toughbook is worse. I'm cocky about being able to type well on undersized keyboards, but this one is clearly meant for Japanese fingers. I fat-finger everything. By the way, I'm not typing on it now. This will take some serious adjustment - and I'm afraid that I'll continue to avoid using it. The Fujitsu P1120 has a normal sized laptop keyboard, with keys 0.7 times those of a standard keyboard; this thing is closer to 0.5.
