So I'm just playing with B132 on the Acer One 8.9".
Even though I downloaded the flash plugin from Adobe and installed it to /usr/lib/firefox/plugins it would not show up in firefox.
I found out in the end that you need to have SUNWmlib installed for the flash plugin to work.
I also tested the attachment in the http://defect.opensolaris.org/bz/show_bug.cgi?id=14099 , after a restart both the Acer One 8.9" and MSI wind could run compiz.

So I'm off trying some new Java SE 6 binaries on an ARM based netbook.
I have it hooked up to a 3 port USB adapter with ethernet, plus a Realtek USB b/g/n wifi adapter, I have it hooked with hdmi - dvd cable to a USB touchscreen, still working on the touchscreen driver.
I'm working with the AI linux distribution for ARM, create with bitbake from the wiki.openembedded.net distro.
I did follow the instructions for actually creating the AI distro on a Core 2 Duo 1.83Ghz system loaded with Ubuntu 9.10, it's quite amazing, 8,800+ automatic steps, about 80Gb disk space.
Bitbake creates the ARM kernel, libraries, compilers, utils, Xfce, applications like Firefox, an amazing peice of work from AI.
So this arrived today the Touckbook.
It's actually in two pieces, you can un-dock the keyboard from the main display, both pieces have a battery. It has an 8.9" 1024x600 touchscreen.
Why am I doing this, well it's to test Java SE 6 and the firefox plugin.
I hope to be able to get JavaFX applications to run on the system also.
I'll probably be working on getting my favorite email/calendar software cross compiled and installed Evolution.
It's going to take awhile to get my head around Linux again, the setup to cross compile to ARM really complex.
I did test an ARM version of Android on the Beagleboard, worked pretty well.
I work for the Java Embedded Global Business Unit of Oracle within Java Industry Solutions group under Alliances and Channels . I'm focused on the Java SE Embedded and BDB for ARM and PPC across multiple verticals
