h20s, You're going to be used as an example.
You are, whether or not you intended to be, a n00b.
We're going to examine why.
You posted a link to the OQO device, which is somewhere between a PDA and a full PC, running full WindowsXP. It does look like a pretty cool device.
There are many discussions about the OQO already here.
modUlarBeing knew it was already known about when he posted about the OQO a little over a year ago:
the OQO has arrived!
ApoloV saw it six months earlier:
Awesome little product..
Lastly, Lando thought it looked cool two and a half years ago:
Perfect Computer For Mobile MP3
If you'll notice in each of those links, OQO is bold and in red, like this: OQO
That's because I searched for OQO and found those threads. The forums conveniently highlight the keywords I search for. Thanks vBulletin!
Anyway, the point is, there are exactly fourteen threads about this little comptuer going back to April 2002. One thread actaully has some serious discussion about how to installs and what potential pitfalls would be and the like.
I don't have an OQO, but I know quite a bit about it. How could this be?
I use the tools that are available to me, not only on this forum, bot on the internet as a whole. Tools such as Google. OK, maybe only one tool, really.
So, h20s, You're a n00b. It's not because you have a post count of six. That makes you a newbie, which we welcome. New blood is always nice.
This posting, however makes you a n00b, or at least exhibits n00b-like behavior. This is what we want to correct.
These forums are a wealth of information. I have learned much from hanging around here that are making my project come together exactly the way I want. However, it is up to the users to locate the information. It's a matter of being self-sufficient, which is a characteristic you must possess in order to pull off your carPC project (or any project, really). So when a n00b (or someone acting like a n00b, because we all have lapses, myself included) commits the foul, I believe education is the key.
So, consider yourself educated. There is a wealth of information. You search on the keyword OQO, you'll find 15 threads (this one is now included!)
Please understand that this isn't done in the spirit of malice or hate, but rather in an attempt to educate for the betterment of the community as a whole.
