Gosh! I didn't realize this computer was so pitiful. I
thought it was less pitiful than that. No wonder I
have to wait for my mouse cursor to move in time
delays. Minix 3 is still in development, includs gcc,
etc. build tools, and now in this release, it includes
X. That's nice, but I see this is a good opertunity to
learn the command line better. I have to concerns
though about doing that.
1. I have successfully ran Minix3 inside of VMWare,
but this time, I don't have the computer horsepower to

forced to, and it's not a virtual machine. The problem
could be hardware support. I looked and could not find
2. Is any text based browsers such as w3m, links2, and
lynx going to support some webpages such as gmail? Am
