> Have Just Purchased A Simpad (again), Looking for advice

Hello Opensimpad forums,

Have just purchased an SL4 off eBay after flogging my previous one for twice the price a couple of years ago. Having been out of the Simpad scene for a while I am looking for some advice on what to do (I am comfortable flashing roms).

Previously I tried an Opie image on my Simpad but frankly it was not that good and did not work very well. The Windows CE images both had their advantages and disadvantages.

My intended use for the Simpad is fairly standard, web browsing, ebook reading (as many formats as possible), PDF reader, RSS reading and possibly some light gaming. The simpad comes with some kind of Sandisk CF WiFi card which has built in memory.

My questions are:

1) Will the CF WiFi card work with any of the linux based images?

2) Which image is best for the purposes I have described? I am quite tempted by the Opie image.

3) Are the packages kept fairly up to date?

Any info and advice would be gratefully appreciated. Sorry for the vagueness.
