Just a quick "hello" to the forum.

I have bought my first Zaurus from another forum member today!
I've been doing a lot of research on purchasing the best smallest computing device and settled on the Zaurus SL-C3100!

I really am blown away by all of the amazing work all the developers put in, it's all highly impressive and commendable.
All the contributors to open software are the true pioneers and revolutionaries of today.

Open software and tiny devices like this are the future.

I live in the United States in Baltimore City (most are familiar with as the backdrop of HBO's The Wire and home of delicious crab cakes) and being a fan of small Japanese electronics my entire life I wager that no Zaurus was ever sold here. I am glad to have now learned about it, albeit late, and am equally amazed at the potential of the device and how still it has yet to be matched.

Thank you for your work and I look forward to learning more over time. I will try my damndest to not be an annoying newb and continue to search and learn. ph34r.gif

More useful knowledge - thanks Jon_J, appreciate it. Actually I didn't know that pdaxii13 was a derivative/refinement of pdaxrom beta 3, so thanks for making that clear for me. I would love to have Cacko on my Z as well, and from what I've read, it sounds like it's possible to have that and Debian together, but I likely won't risk anything right away that could disable basic usefulness. I originally thought it was bizarre that people would have different Zs for diff distros, but the multiboot situation does seem to be a bit difficult and confusing at least in my preliminary skimming on the subject.
