javispedro notes that this works better than the N900 version.
In true Maemo Nokia N900 style multitasking applications keep running whilst in the multitasking view. Mario is still moving.

mupen64plus with Ari64′s new_dynarec and Adventus’ gles2n64, working on the N950 with minimal changes. Also some SDL application swipe action.
Of interest is that Ari64′s new_dynarec works on a hardfp eabi platform without changes, and that there’s a quite a nice speed bump when compared to the N900. No frameskipping was used, and CPU clock was at 800Mhz (set by ondemand governor, and it even had some 20% idle CPU time to spare — as long as it was not in the background, when compositor kicks in).
