BenQ S6 MID and 10 " Multi Touch

Hi All,

 So I've been having some fun this week with a BenQ S6 4.8" MID, it's kind of cute, it's running Windows XP, I'll keep this one here until I get the 3G mini PCI-E modem installed, then I'm going to try a couple of Linux versions and off course OpenSolaris.

Not sure how OS will deal with the touchscreen, I already know how to build the onscreen keyboard for X.

Next week I hope to take delivery of a 10" multi touch touchscreen netbook, direct from manufacturer in China.

If it looks like it really is as advertised I'll let you guys know where I got it. Getting multi touch working on Xorg should be a interesting project, plus the touchscreen mouse and onscreen keyboard.

It's got a 300Gb HD, so I should be able to get Windows 7, Ubuntu and OpenSolaris installed without any problems.

Have a great weekend

Dave

How did you go getting OpenSolaris on the BenQ S6. I'm getting one next week and want to try the same thing.

Yes, used an external USB stick, not much good though, no wifi, no touchscreen
