It probably has.
I am used to using the terminal to install stuff.
Usually I have headless systems ;)

Yes indeed.
ATM I am quite happy with it.
And they are really dedicated to the Pibebook Pro.

This forum contains echomail areas hosted on Nightmare BBS You can browse local echomail areas, italian fidonet areas and a selection of international fidonet areas, reading messages posted by users in Nightmare BBS or even other BBSs all over the world. You can find file areas too (functional to fidonet technology). You can browse echomail areas and download files with no registration, but if you want to write messages in echomail areas, or use fidonet netmail (private messages with fidomet technology), you have to register.
