How does compare work and play on netwalker vs zaurus?

I am using c1000. Im very happy with usb host, keyboard, battery time, video performance (cacko), linux onboard, cf and sd card slots.
I am not satisfied with amount of ram, usb pigtail, issues with zubuntu (video performance), overral performance in memory hungry applications (so thats second time first problem).

I dont use wifi at all. I use BT a bit (syncing with phone, connecting through gprs).
I like to doddle in qcad, dia, read ebooks, a bit of web browsing.

I would use RDP connections a lot if i could connect VGA monitor to netwalker.

And my question:
How netwalker compares to zaurus performance?
I have read that there are some issues with video performance but is it that big problem?

I would buy one if I could do as much as on my zaurus (with zubuntu) plus some desktop/laptop activities.
Currently i have oqo 01+ but it does ~1,5h battery time and is a bit too slow in xp. I could not make power governors under linux do more than 90minutes of work. Thats why I am looking for next personal mobile tool...

How does compare work and play on netwalker vs zaurus?

Netwalker 'out of the box' feels more like a regular laptop computer, just much, much smaller, due to running Ubuntu, just like a laptop....

You can change to Zubuntu, Xubuntu, etc if you want...

Also, Netwalker feels more powerful than Netwalker, has larger keyboard and display, but almost shirt pocketable, more like jacket pocketable. So, due to larger keyboard and display, I enjoy working on Netwalker much more than on Zaurus. It's really nice that it has built-in wifi (can be turned on and off...), standard size USB port, and a microSD slot that can take large size card (I have 16GB card in mine...)...

Video works OK and I installed Flash Lite, so, can watch YouTube and other videos....

PM me if interested in getting one...

Hope this helps...

Mark

Thanks for suggestion.
My linux background is quite solid. I am aware that i can turn netwalker into almost everything which can be done with linux.

My problem is to find a device which will replace most of the devices I am carrying now.

I got oqo to do the trick but it failed. Wakes up too long, battery time is too short, performance is so-so. It gave me a lot lighter backpack but I still needs to carry c1000 to be happy with ebooks and mp3...

I dont want to get new toy just to discover it is not solving my "backpack problem" smile.gif
