I really liked the screen. The unit though is to big to fit on your belt and quite heavy in the pocket. Not much work was done on the new interface or new applications. Load time is slow on legacy applications. Mail client would not do ssl. Pine would not load without errors. Did not want to test the non vga commercial mail client tclmail. Battery time is too little for doing much browsing via web. Terminal program did not have a good set of fonts to use. Sharp site not much help or looking like they are planning to support the new units very well. I really wanted the unit to work but it was just a little clumsy and needed to be more like a laptop for the price. I would like to see what a larger cg screen could do running a full linux install to get around the app problems. For an enterprise specific solution it may work but I think a new clamshell would be nice to try with integrated communication components. I have a sl 5500 and could not justify the difference in price between how I would use the sl 6000. I can carry my 5500 everywhere but the bigger size of sl 6000 made it more like trying to lug a reduced funtionality notebook without much software support.

I want to use kismet and want to find the chipset.

Is there a way to edit the terminal.conf file to get a scroll bar when displaying output in the VGA terminal program provided by Sharp with SL 6000.
