I got my 6000L a few months back from a nice fellow on these boards. I'm just wondering how many other people have them now that they have been out for a little while.

I have had my SL-6000L since the midle of June and I love it...Now I am just trying to get OZ running on it so that it is easer to add new things to the kernel like uses of my keyspan usb to serial adapter for tipping into solaris server...

Have mine since early August. Sharp is not selling the Z in my country (Canada), so ordered it at Amazon and have it shipped to my sister living in USA.

I am really amazed by it. Now shopping for adds-on and impatiently waiting after OZ....

hi,

had mine since mid may. super stuff. is my third zaurus and while i just love the screen i have two major cribs against it:

a. unlike the earlier models which i could sync wirelessly, i cant get it to work on the 6000 yet.
b. battery life with wifi on is really poor.

cheers,

/bazmi.

Had mine since the end of May. The screen blows me away every time I turn it on. Especially if I have been using the 5600 for a bit.

I have had a Z6KL since mid August, it is great! I am planing on putting on one of the OpenSource OS's on it (maybe OpenZaurus.)

I have a 6000L from Amazon and am waiting for a 6000W from Japan. I'm a developer attracted to the 6000 by the screen and the promise of having a USB host as well as WiFi/Bluetooth on-board. I hope to contribute significant experience with Linux and code; it does look like the 6000-series is getting a bit overlooked in the software arena.

Had mine since April. The SL-6000 is a fun (not so little) machine. I had one guy ask if it was an "older" machine because of its size. Once I told him I was running a Web server and a VNCserver, I got a little more respect.

Thanks to DevImg, I have even done a little compiling on the Z. It isn't fast, but it does work! I am very fond of a wireless signal strength monitoring tool called wavemon. It is just a terminal based program, but it reads signal strenght in DB (which is more precise). Because it runs in a terminal, I can ssh into the Z (from my laptop) run wavemon, and monitor the signal strength that the Z is seeing. Then I just have my son wander around the house, while I do the wlan site survey from the comfort of my easy chair ;-)

It is too bad that Sharp is pulling the SL-6000 out of the US market. But that isn't the end of the world. After all, I live in Canada (where they are _not_ sold) and I still have one!

I have had my ZSL6kL since late May. Its a pretty awsome tool and I don't regret buying it for even a second. Despite Sharps lackluster support.

Where might one find Wavemon?
