Hi,

Just want to plug my Zubuntu project a bit here as well wink.gif

I'm heading for a 1.0 release. Quite some progress has been made.The LXDE desktop is speedy and simple, it fits the Zaurus very well. Compared to Gnome or even XFCE it is blazing fast, I played around with the LXLauncher as well. I leave it in, but it won't be enabled on default. Maybe it will by the time I get used to it. Zubuntu currently lacks a decent set of PIM applications. A bit odd maybe, because for me that's the most important set of applications when using the Zaurus on a daily basis

For more information, visit my blog.

Cheers,
cortez

Just another vote of encouragement, being election day and all! I can't wait to try it once you release it.

Agreed. It seems the final destination for the Z is Ubuntu or Debian (and I've gotten used to ubuntu on everything else), though maybe a cacko dual boot would be nice for use as a media player. How is the sound working? anything comparable to Eviljazz's modules happening on 2.6? video? Is dualboot avoidable?
