Have installed the Rotate program under 2008.9 and works really well. Never got the Gesture one to work properly under 2008.8.
I have only used the Midori webbrowser till now as I still haven;t had inspiration or time to fix Wifi. Using Mofi under 2008.9 to connect to Wifi, but since I am running D-link hardware there might be complications with IP addresses and the like. Think I have also used the openmoko browser but that sucked through a thin straw..
