Hacking around today. Would like to get the caps lock to work as a control key on ubuntu, though the login is pretty janky - it pops up with a keyring thing and I get some internal error messages (though these don't seem to cause any harm). Would be nice to switch to Debian though wireless internet doesn't work, yet. That'd be a good project, to upgrade the kernel on debian to have the proprietary intel wireless driver.
Somebody has made a browser that is exploring a similar niche to what I'm going for - offline, js-free, etc. https://github.com/runvnc/tersenet is the repo but it's not functioning yet, apparently. Also it's written in nim and installing nim on ubuntu doesn't work?
