I bought this C3200 to use OpenBSD... however this week I decided to try various Linux ROMS for the hell of it... and Cacko Lite 1.23 wins. Yes, it is early in my trial period and I may get frustrated but I travel quite a bit and Cacko is a no-brainer to use.

OpenBSD needs to add SD support and get far more packages (I am too lazy to build ports). Until then, I think I will stay with Cacko... saying that I do have OpenBSD still on the system, just in case.

After all it's a PDA, not a workstation or server. I know barryg uses his Zaurus for work and many of you might as well... but the average user may benefit from taking a closer look at Linux. Or not! hahaha smile.gif

Writing this on openbsd/macppc Powerbook G4,

P.S. (forgot) please feel free to flame

Now, I wouldn't mind OpenBSD on my 5600. But of course, that would require a nice 4GB SD card support to actually install it from.
