Hi Paul, thanks for your suggestion and so many others in which you helped
me (without knowing it)  :-) good time to recognize it.

I will studied and try it out.

I use my phone for a lot of development. None critical, nor important
development, but important for me because it helps me learn in a TDD way,
sort of.

So this might help. Ultimately my goal is to have an Ubuntu like system,
with a working (poorly if you wish) phone app. Right now I feel I am halfway
there. But more needs to be done for me.

I want a linux system. even the username and password stuff. even that I
miss... :-)
