Hacker edition is quite usable. You should give it a shot. Be sure to
turn on lots of swap and try not to run too many things at once.

No, you won't be able to use any bora apps on os2006. And no, there
almost certainly won't be anything more official than hacker edition
for 770.

Background is that i would like to use software like 'winzig', which requires python - but i haven't found python in the 'mistral' repos. There are also some other programs, i'm interested in (like evince as a replacement for the crappy built-in pdf-reader), but which seem not to appear being in any 'misral' repos. When i tried adding the 'bora-extras free non-free' repo into my sources.list, it only produced a bunch of error-messages when 'apt-get update'ing...
