Full Version: Yet Another "what's Best" Question
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Distros, Development, and Model Specific Forums > Model Specific Forums > Sharp Zaurus > 5x00 General discussions
So I took about a two year break from my Zaurus because I had thought it no longer read CF cards ... apparently I was wrong...

Anyway, coming back I see that the current version of OZ is like 3.5.x (last I used was 3.3.5) and Sharp has likely long since stopped making Roms for the SL-5500. So, I am wondering at this point, what rom would be best for me to use.

I run Ubuntu as my main OS on my main machine, so I want something I can more or less easily synch there. I would like, if possible, to be able to eject and mount CF/SD cards while using my zaurus as well (I hear that OZ 3.4 and beyond like much better to have root installed on SD than internal...) Those are pretty much my only criteria.

Other than that, I'm probably going to have to rip the thing apart and install another Backup battery in the thing ... thats always a fun task...
I just recently loaded Qtopia 2.1.2. There's talk about it in this thread

If you just want basic day to day stuff this one seems great. If you want more out of yours than the OZ route may be better with GPE.
