Now I just need a printer for it (ideally with some kind of housing to make it all one unit).

It should be compatible with HP-82240A/B

But I suppose we'll all have our nitpicks and preferences about the way things "should" be done. It's minor.

UI is currently under improvement. It should be possible to use part of the screen as a virtual printer. And more...

No, USB power and data connection. CPU jumps from 24 to 80MHz when connected.

They have to, for the Free42 implementation. Not so for the underlying OS.

Nice ideas, please share them with Michael!
