I just wanted to report on some recent success forwarding X11 from a remote ssh server to the 770. Following RealNitro's advice (http://blog.eikke.com/index.php/realnitro/2005/11/17/remote_x_sessions_on_nokia_770) I was able to successfully forward amarok and firefox to the 770 with very good performance (see attached pix running amarok). The only thing missing is mapping the kbrd to openssh. I think I now understand why the developers opted for X11 instead of a lightweight graphics interface like DirectFB. With only a little work, the 770 could be an incredible thinclient. Anyone know if there is anyfurther development on openssh for the 770 to allow for text entry, sound forwarding etc? I know there is a way to forward the esd output, but I haven't messed with that yet.
