Newbie alert! ph34r.gif

I noticed that as of now with the Linux 2.6 kernel, OZ is installed on the microdrive (as is pdaXrom and OpenBSD, if I am not mistaken). Cacko, however, is still installed in RAM, correct? Or, at least the basic core of it in Cacko lite, with additional packages elsewhere? Am I on the right track here?

My impression is that this would extend battery life because the Microdrive does not have to be working all of the time for basic OS operations. I have looked around for battery life comparisons with no success. Does anyone here have a sense of the relative battery life among the distros?

pdaXrom is still installed to the NAND except SL-C3000...

OpenBSD to my knowledge is completely installed to MD...
