Photo: Angstrom running on FDM prototype

January 30, 2009

Some were wondering why MWeston’s latest video showed him launching apps remotely via PC, rather than running the Angstrom distro that Pandora will ship with. It wasn’t due to SD slots not working or incomplete software, as speculated, but because the great continental divide between MWeston (hardware man, Canada) and EvilDragon (software man, Germany) prevented him popping next door for tea, scones, and tech support. Don’t forget that we’ve already seen Angstrom running in all its glory courtesy of ED.

The good news is that MWeston has now sorted out his 1’s and 0’s, and has Angstrom running on the FDM prototype. We don’t have a video yet, but we do have a dashing new photo. Word from MW is that it’s playing nicely with Pandora’s keyboard. Click pic for a bigger version and eat it up. Just save some room for dessert.

  3. This is so damn exciting😀
    Imagine holding this little beauty in your own hands…

  4. Be nice if the hardware man could use macro. I’m liking what I’m seeing so far! even though I won’t be gettting a 1st batch. Very nice.
