Linux on BrailleNotes

I have written a simple but effective menu system that allow for the 
running of programs from a menu.
I also have a file browser and a few scripts to copy files from a menu 
system etc.  The idea here is to build a localized note taker type device 
for South Africa.

I am doing this in work time, so I will first have to find out what the 
procedure for releasing it is, but it will be open-source and would be 
available for use in Free soft or whatever you want to call that.

I have done some other work towards the creation of the note taker as 
People can mail me should they want more info.
Regards, Willem
