Hahaha, when I searched for a successor for my Atari St, my first guess
was Apple. It's not naive, since hardware is important, reliable
hardware is important, unfortunately my moneybag ships with some
limitations ;). I had the same dream. I won an iPad2 and can't use it,
since Vbox + oracle-ext + XP SP2 can't handle it. No jailbreak until
now, but I downloaded Absinth a long time ago, I simply wished to test a
"legal" iPad for a while. My iPad2 is unable to get iBooks, so every
elCheapo Ebookreader has more abilities than my iPad 2, just because I'm
using Linux. It's not a fault of Linux, it's spirit of mischief by
companies like M$ and Apfel.
