Finally, Linux is making its own place in entertainment world. You can play games, watch movies, read ebooks and much more. The Gamepark Holdings GP2X-F100 (console) features dual ARM9 processors, USB 2.0, a 3.5-inch color LCD, support for both native and emulated games, and a Linux SDK (software development kit). Look like a good holiday purchase :D

I have GP2X , crippled …
Why can’t i switch between a
text file and a .JPG with
one keystroke ?
Why can’t i link .JPG’s
with other kinds of files
so i can “use” them together ?
Now , to use Linux
i must write scripts to automate
everything …
Linux is too low level for the
boxes , its in .

Basicly the GPX2 Is and has mainly been designed for coders/developers alike yes the average home user can get the hand on it and be able to use the basic features but if you want to run emulators etc then you wil need an understanding of Basic computer language, dont think you can pull it out of the box and be able to play what ever games you like, You will have to find the game and be able to load it on the device (easy if you know where to look, ever heard of google?) and you have to get the emulators which you can donwload via any good gpx2 site, then you have to load it onto the device and congigure it, if you want a handhled that you can play games on straight out of the box then DONT GET THIS DEVICE, if your like me and dont mind fiddling and coding scripts and basic messing bout with dev kits e.t.c then this device is perfect!!!
