Nobody has ported OpenOffice. I developed a hack that runs OpenOffice in a
Debian chroot.

This same Debian chroot can also run every command line tool available
within Debian, including telnet, nmap and netcat. All of these (and hundreds
more) are available with a simple apt-get install.

Ubuntu has also made a tablet-compatible armel distribution available, and
so you can chroot into an Ubuntu rootfs as well.

It is also possible to set up an entire development environment in the
chroot that allows you to build Debian or Ubuntu source packages on the

I built the entire Enlightenment e17 suite on-tablet using an Ubuntu chroot
and a turnkey build script that I downloaded. It took the tablet 8-10 hours
to do it ;-) ... but it worked!

I don't believe it is Nokia's responsibility to provide developers with
hacker's tools. Especially since they are free for the taking in several
other places.
