Worried that framework bloat might eliminate a range of possibilities cramp your development practices on such a small device? Why not run Groovy and Grails on it! Shown here running Linux, several command shells, a Firefox browser, the Groovy Console, a database, a web container and Grails (which itself includes Hibernate and Spring) all in 512M of memory. And of course it has no hard disk, so the whole footprint of Groovy, Grails and Java 6 is just a few hundred meg of the available flash memory.


  • You might also want to grab Grails and install that too by unzipping it.
