yeah :) 

I got inspired to perhaps trying E17 sometime later when the real release is 
out in December (sort of philosophically compatible - light, pure C and 
permissively licensed).

If I get time I will also look into netsurf (I guess gtk stuff work now since 
lxde works - I would really like an EFL variant of netsurf ;) ).

In VirtualBox it works (with the edited /bin/X), the keyboard and mouse under 
a natively booted Sabotage is the problem:)

Thanks! I will try that. It might be faster and more convenient to experiment 
under VirtualBox rather than a chroot or rebooting into Sabotage :)

I will definitely look into that.
