There's been no news since 0.2.2 earlier in January.

Was it abandoned, or still kicking? Any plans to ad X11....

It appears the "Report" post function is broken. I've just tried to report a post, and I got this error:

Mail Error!

Could not send the email
Failed at 'mail' command

Just FYI.

As to what I wanted to report, the Toronto ZUG is erroneously listed in North America West, while it should be in the North America East smile.gif

The Toronto ZUG is currently listed in North America West.... which doesn't make sense, since it's in the Eastern Region......

This is probably an oversight, could we move it?

I was surprised to see the dev board is now back online.

From what I've read there, it only to support "enterprise" users, but us lowly individuals are still welcome smile.gif

This "enterprise" mentality is so backward, I just can't understand how they could miss the open source concepts, that it is individulas, who have an "itch" who make things happen, and develop software to meet their needs.

Sharp is using GNU and Linux. GNU and Linux were not not developed for the "enterprise", but because individuals started developing software for their own needs, Linux became very useful, and profitable, for the "enterprise".

Sharp is trying to do this in a backwards fashion. They want to start selling only to "enterprise", for obvious "volume" considerations. But they clearly missed the point, that it never worked that way for open source communities. Why should it work now?

They're basically digging their own graves. "Enterprise" customers will not use a propriteary platform made of open source components, they can just use existing proprietary formats such WinCE or others. There's no point in using Zaurus for the "enterprise", unless the Zaurus platform becames very popular on it's own first. And this cannot happen without a thriving community.

Anyway, this is just my rant, and I'm glad the ZUG forum is picking up Sharp's slack and making a place for the Zaurus community.

For the last few days I've been trying all ROM's, flashing 2-4 times a day smile.gif

Whle doing so, I found a quick trick to speed up things.

To get to the flash menu, no need to unplug, take out the battery and wait 5 seconds. Just reboot (from the menu or command line 'reboot'), and while it's rebooting, just press OK button. The flash menu will show up iimmediately.

Maybe some of you are already doing it this way, but thought I'd share the tip, since it's new to me. It's a time saver if you flash a lot (I mean the ROM) smile.gif
