Saw Antikx's post over at his Tyrannozaurus website today about whether there's future for Zaurus??

Perfect timing of this post as in the past day or so I've found myself pondering whether to pickup another 3200 as I sold my other Z's last year....

Not even sure why I'm thinking about this, maybe it's the feeling that soon they'll be gone, at least new ones...

Anyway, am I nutz or is the Z still a useful option compared to newer options such as a Nokia N810 for example????......

;-)


What does this illustrious group think????

If you really want PIM stuff, the N810 probably isn't any better of a choice than the Z.

Any distro will load almost instantly (assuming you just suspend and don't actually shut down). Angstrom is nice*, and has similar capabilities as pdaX (different quirks, perhaps fewer, and more up-to-date).

*GPE and Opie are lousy IMO, so you kind of need to build your own image if you want a straight-up X11 environment (by that I mean with a "standard" environment, like Xfce or Fluxbox or IceWM) . So long as you have a Linux box with some free space, it's mostly painless (and simple).


I have a very nice T61p laptop for X, I just need SSH, media playing and PIM, really. I suppose I've just come to perceive my 3200 as slower than the 860 because of the hard drive, so really my goal should be more keeping everything I can on flash than complaining about resume times! It looks to me on first glance that Angstrom is as dead as pdaXrom, am I just looking at the wrong site?
