My black nc10 finally arrived today, i know its weird for a delivery on a sunday.
Anyway, i have spent the day getting used to the little device as i will travelling around with it alot and doing various work on it,
I was just wondering do any of you use your device for programming? and if so how powerful does the machine limit you as to which language you can use.
I will be using netbeans and java coding most the time but i hope the machine can cope with the compile processes i am putting it through as i will be using alot of threading code etc.
will it handle it?

I am sure that running the actual IDE environments themselves should be fine on the sammy, but I would imagine that the compile process would take a really long time since it always takes a long time when I try to compile simple stuff on my mac with a core 2 duo.January 4, 2009 at 11:39 pm #178502l0x2Member

I’ve been doing a small amount of programming mostly using the Eclipse IDE on the NC10, which runs fine. Compiling small programs should also be fine (guess it depends what you call small though), for larger programs it will take a while.
I’m going to be using my NC10 to do some programming though I don’t expect to be doing that much due to the small screen, also I’ll be running the programs on my desktop (unless it’s testing with small amounts of data).
As a side note, I have done a stage 1 Gentoo installation then compiled Xorg on my NC10, which took quite a few hours.January 5, 2009 at 9:42 am #178494jezMember
I have PHP, MySQL and Apache running on mine with no probs. I’ve not tried Visual Studio yet but it was always something I intended to put on at some point.January 5, 2009 at 11:28 am #178498TJ_1984Member
I’m running VIsual Studio, with the RAM upgrade it runs beautifully. Only issue is the development screen is fairly small so I suggest having everything set to hide when the mouse isn’t over it.January 5, 2009 at 9:59 pm #178500lemmyMember
I used to program on a 386 with VGA resolution . It’s a matter of expectations, not ability!January 5, 2009 at 11:10 pm #178497saureyMember
I use Powershell for scripting mostly WMI Queries and it’s noticeably slower than my office system.January 6, 2009 at 2:04 pm #178503PessimissedMember

lol – and now you know just how powerful an NC10 can be :)!
But yes, I do have a local copy on my NC10 and it runs just fine! With 1 user!January 6, 2009 at 6:03 pm #178504stevesMember
I’ve loaded mine up with all sorts of web development software (MySQL, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express, Visual Web Developer 2008 Express, Dreamweaver etc.). It’s also running Office 2007, and Adobe Creative Suite CS3.
I have test versions of several websites running on it (in Classic ASP and PHP) and all work fine under Vista’s IIS7.0 – including an SQL Server backed website that performs full text searches on 90000 records.
This machine replaces a very expensive Sony Vaio G Series which I’m giving back to work, because its always been way too slow!
Even though its slightly heavier, I prefer the NC10 in every way – despite it costing a fraction of the price of the Sony.

Netbeans runs ok, takes a while longer to load up on my nc10 than on my desktop but its to be expected. C++ 6 runs fine. XAMPP (apache, mysql, php etc.) runs fine – seems to be a little slow when just starting it up. Compilation process from both IDE’s takes a bit longer than a dual core desktop but isnt to bad.. as stated above, depends on what your compiling.
TJ_1984, what version of VS are you running? I plan on installing VS 08 soon. I’d expect it to run fine though…
