Congrats on the new gadget.

I'm so glad you got a Duo - please keep us posted with how well it runs 
LiveCode. Seems like a perfect blend to have a tablet that doubles as a 
laptop, esp. for a LiveCode addict like me where I tend to do a lot of 
typing on even my smallest machines.

As I wrote here a couple days ago, I've been very impressed with the 
Atom processor, and the form factor of the Dell Duo is as attractive as 
it is versatile - it's been the talk of the town in the Ubuntu forums 
for weeks.

With Ubuntu Netbook Remix 10.10's uTouch interface, the Duo seems a 
hand-in-glove fit for the new OS - video and notes on uTouch here:

I hope your LiveCode experience on the Duo turns out to be a great one. 
  I look forward to hearing more about how it works for you.
