Aloha Y'all,

I couldn't resist the $430 price for the A9 from Amazon. It should be in my hands around 1 Sep. So now I'll be hanging here more. Some of you may know me from the A5A and 7&8 HTs forums.

I expect to spend a fair amount of effort on our Wiki adding A9 pages. I also might set up temporary sticky topics to collect info for our Wiki pages.

I plan to use the style of the 5IT and 7HT Wiki pages as templates for the A9 pages. If you've looked at those pages then you've seen tables with yellowish backgrounds for the A5A and light blue backgrounds for the 7HT. For the A9 I plan to use light green backgrounds. I've started using the Wiki Category: Archos 9 pctablet. I'll use this category for each A9 page I add or edit.

I'd like to see at least the following Wiki pages:
    1. A9 Newbie Tips
    2. A9 Drivers
    3. A9 Video Tips
    4. Upgrading the Win7 OS
    5. Other OSes on the A9
      6. Linux on the A9
      7. WinXP on the A9
      8. MacOS X on the A9
    9. A9 Videos - Reviews, Demos, Teardown, etc.
    10. How To's Overview - Links to various How To pages
    11. DIY Overview - Links to various Do It Yourself HW project pages

What Wiki pages would you like to see? And/or contribute to?

After we've discussed the content I'll create some placeholder pages to reserve the page titles and provide templates for anyone who would like to contribute. To edit Wiki pages you must register on our Wiki and it's nice if you Wiki name is the same or similar to your Forum name.

Ideas?

Thanks,

Allen

OUTSTANDING!!!!!! Im sure it would be extremely helpful, as well as making thing easier for those of us who are not sure where exactly we want to go with our A9 (XP, win 7, or hackintosh).

I've changed the A9's Wiki home page to conform to the 5IT and 7HT home pages. I've also added a General Topics section.

The General Topics section has a link to all A9 Wiki pages and a link to a New Wiki Page Template which includes instructions for creating a new A9 Wiki page.

Allen

    Shouldn't you add Windows 7 to that list, with perhaps how to upgrade from HS to Ulitmate, or anything in between ??

      4. OSes on the A9
      4.1. Linux on the A9
      4.2. WinXP on the A9
      4.3. MacOS X on the A9
      4.4 Installing/Upgrading Windows 7
