True, but there's a distinct lack of framebuffer GUI programs out there, making it a bit hard to port existing programs.
How likely is it that we can get X Windows working on the Nspire? I've seen X run on machines slower than 32 MB + 150 Mhz. Then again, the Nspire has rather unconventional graphics hardware.

Yeah, the hardware is unconventional. We'll problably end up writing our own "window" manager except that at a 320x240 resolution, windows will likely only be fullscreen. Also, keep in mind some users may want to keep their nspire running at 90MHZ for battery life issues.

I wonder if with a new OS, the processor could actually be slowed down even more during less demanding tasks? It would help saving battery life even more.

As far as I know, yes this should be very possible. It would be pretty nice too. =)

Spoiler For IMPORTANT NEWS!:
Late last night, Quebec was invaded by a group calling themselves, "Omnimaga". Not much is known about these mysterious people except that they all carried calculators of some kind and they all seemed to converge on one house in particular. Experts estimate that the combined power of their fabled calculators is greater than all the worlds super computers put together. The group seems to be holding out in the home of a certain DJ_O, who the Omnimagians claim to be their founder. Such power has put the world at a standstill with everyone waiting to see what the Omnimagians will do...

Wait... This just in, the Omnimagians have sent the UN a list of demands that must be met or else the world will be "submitted to the wrath of Netham45's Lobster Army". Such demands include >9001 crates of peanuts, sacrificial blue lobsters, and a wide assortment of cherry flavored items. With such computing power stored in the hands of such people, we can only hope these demands are met.

In the wake of these events, we can only ask, Why? Why do these people make these demands, what caused them to gather, and what are their future plans...

Thanks. I ended up just installing 1.7. I just needed Nleashed to be able to run.

hm, I wonder if TI has version 1.7o n their site, if not, it would be very difficult for people with a lower OS to upgrade
