Hey guys and gals. I just recieved my new pda in the mail today. I got a Zaurus SL-5500. I also use Ubuntu on my home PC (as well as a very small partition for Win XP for those 1 or 2 things that I haven't figured out how to run in Linux wink.gif ).
I'm not quite sure how to best utilize my new pda. I came from a Dell Axim X3 (don't worry, it was free) and a Palm m100 before that. I know that the 5500 uses a Linux OS...but that's about it. From reading up on some stuff on the net, it seems like there a bit of customization that can be done, same as my PC Linux OS. Am I right in assuming that?
Also, I'm trying to figure out how to sync my pda to Ubuntu so that I can xfer info and backup my data. Any help as far as programs, links to how-to's, or any other tips would be awesome.
My specs are: 2.6 MHz Pentium , 256 Mb RAM, cable modem, Ubuntu Linux Breezy Badger 5.10

openzaurus with your choice of gpe or opie is sort of like ubuntu and kubuntu except it goes deeper. Your choosing X11 or qtopia UIs instead of windows environments
