A VMware appliance built on Ubuntu which allows for easy Nokia N800 Internet Tablet console and GUI development, including debugging in the nested Xephyr X server is available. This appliance is targeted at the N800’s Maemo Bora 3.0 platform.

I was going to do something like this myself. I don’t like having to install some five different SDKs on one Linux-installation, as typically none of them do it quite like the distribution intended, and creating all sorts of collisions
Ensures you get all the toolchain properly configured, and also stays completely sparate from your system.
why don’t they add support to QEMU instead ?
it’s way more portable (due to being Free Software) than vmware, which even on Linux is probably only available on x86 and maybe 86_64 arch…
But who cares about Solaris, BeOS, RISCOS, AmigaOS…
