the name of this forum/board isn't really that meaningful

what do people think - keep the name, add a bit, lose a bit?

the only device which is routinely discussed is the zaurus, so it seems to me that a better name would simply be "the zaurus forum".

What about people with Nokia N80/N81 or Simpad or such ?

I think the reason why these forums were originally called OESF was to embrace these other platforms. I can't see a good reason to relegate them. Is "Zaurus" hardware or software ?

I agree that Open Embedded Software Foundation is not particularly clear. The "foundation" part makes it sound like a charity. Face it, if you were searching on Google and found that title you probably wouldn't come here to discuss Maemo, Angstrom or Zaurus.

the nokia tablet community is very active on talk.maemo.org and I'd never come here other than to discuss porting maemo to zaurus.

I think of the zaurus as a package, hardware platform plus a range of possible OSs.

I don't know how active the simpad community is, whether there's alternative sites that are now the focus?

the "foundation" part, I agree, is pointless.
