As so many of the posts start:
"I just got a new 5500, and..."
"I have read a ton of stuff online, but..."

I'm hoping that my relatively finite objectives for the Zaurus 5500, will point to a clear winner among the existing ROMs. I would like my Z to run the following programs:

-python
-vim
-any mp3 player
-any internet browser
-simple games (sudoku and mindbreaker type stuff)
-any jpeg viewer
-calendar, to do list, etc

Which ROM would you recommend? Note: I'm totally new to unix except for the OS X terminal.

Also, I plan to put a 1Gb SD card and a 802.11b or g CF card in it. Any recommendations on what to get (or not get).

Thank you.

I second that. OZ works really good on my Collie. I have even installed blackdown Java and am considering installing Jython. KDE PIM is awesome. The alarms ring. qpealarm beats out any software I have used on anything, including all three of my previous palm pilots. Networking works great with my Belkin wifi card using konqueror. I even did my email using my Collie during a boring meeting without anyone noticing.

I haven't installed python yet, and don't like vim, but I'm doing all the rest on my 5500 with the Sharp 3.13 ROM. (I added OTR player & opera 7, using stock PIMs)
