Yep... And long overdue for being retrieved and de-Borged to see the
true light of GNU/Linux.


Had a glance at some of the present e-readers and e-ink displays and...

Really like the zero power to maintain the display and hence the
excellent battery life.


Mainly monochrome only and no RGB or CYMK colour;

Relatively low res;

e-ink displays are surprisingly expensive for even mediocre res.

So... The chromebook anew looks to be good!

That's an old project to be soon dusted off :-)
