Re-evolutuion in DIY Ground control

So, i have a general knollege now of the APM, how it works, and trouble shooting it on different platforms. However, I dont know alot about the Mission planner/ground control...

Since I have been building ALOT of scratch made planes for rc/APM =]

I wanted to explore a "DIY Portable Ground control" as a groth in the diydrones community!

I know that the APM mission planner is an open sorce code that can be run on windows, and mac..?

But I was wondering, if it can be run on a home built tablet like device running on a gumstix processor?


The idea is to get the rc transmiter, the telemetry, and groundstation/ video all into one light weight, ultra portable device!
