Can I ask a question about the Kindle with regards to using it as a general purpose computing device, running Linux? My question is about the APIs that might be available to a programmer writing an application to run on Kindle hardware.
It's a little hard to tell from the FAQ, because it contradicts itself. It says that I can ask questions about computers, but not about electronic devices. Well, I haven't seen many mechanical computers around lately. The Kindle fully qualifies as a computer, containing all of the basic parts: CPU, RAM, OP, screen. Just because it is small shouldn't rule it off topic. This popular answer seems to agree.
So I feel like this questions should be OK, but I thought I should ask first.
