Yeah, I had w3m going under Debian with an RTL8150-based ethernet widget. It
worked surprisingly well. I also have a couple of wireless ethernet widgets,
but they require fiddly firmware to make work and I haven't tried.

...I'm actually thinking that one of the best uses for my E3 is as a terminal
for my house server, which is an ARM-based NSLU2 running Debian. Both devices
have non-level-shifted serial ports, although I might need an inverter. Given
that I have two low-end ARM devices, I'm also wondering whether networking
them together with OpenMosix might actually achieve anything, other than hack
