I am seriously thinking about using Angstrom on my SIMpad SL4 as recommended on opensimpad.org. But the site does not give any real certainty about the usability of the current release. Some parts on the page says it works, some parts contradict that.

Is the 2.6 Kernel and Angstrom stable and working? Does it support the bluetooth & MMC card mods as described on opensimpad.org?
I understand that the sound isn't, and that is not a problem as long as my bluetooth CF adapter can use my Mobile as a modem for internet browsing.
I just want to use email and the internet on a more modern OS and browser than windows CE 4.0

Thank you in advance for answering my n00b questions.

May I ask if there is a functional pdf viewer (about as fast as adobe acrobat reader for win.ce) that supports hyperlinks and maybe bookmarks/table of contents available?

I never used acrobat on wince but you can try evince, it supports hyperlinks. There is also epdfview which is smaller and also supports hyperlinks. The disadvantage of epdfview is, that on simpad you cannot use the switch buttons to scroll.
But I suggest just try them both and than decide for one. I am using epdfview on my pad, but if you only want to use your simpad as ebook reader I suggest evince because of the switch button support.

best regards
