I'm slow. I just found out about these not too long ago. I'm trying to decide between a 3100 or a 3200. I want to try out a few linux flavors (and maybe OpenBSD), use it for offsite monitoring of my home network, and some light emulation.

So I pose the question to you guys, 'What do you do primarily with your Zaurus?'

web browsing, wifi sniffing, serial console for managing cisco network kit, ssh terminal using openvpn client *, rss reader, media player (mp3, movies, internet radio streams), vnc or rdesktop client to control media player, VOIP phone (saves me money on international calls when I'm in USA calling UK).

basically, anything you can do on a micro laptop. so long as you're willing to invest a bit of time especialy when it comes to transcoding videos if that's your thing.

* when I am on call it's nice to not have to break out the laptop, I have an audiobox GPRS card giving me mobile data, but I can also use a bluetooth card to talk to a 3G mobile phone too; not tried employer's huawei e172 usb modem with the zaurus yet as I think I need a powered hub.
