Hello Everyone,

Unable to withstand another moment of "Thomas and Friends" on the internet - (thought the Rev. Audrey wrote some interesting morality plays biggrin.gif ). I convinced my son to "Talk" to some people about "Commpootersss".

We (ok, me for my sanity) wanted to chat about ROM choices for mainly work choices.

Work for his father is short note taking, dry.gif searching of a company intranet (love hotspots) biggrin.gif database for the notes, huh.gif some EXCELLENT security (my job is related to supporting people with welfare issues so no peekies please (wifi OR physical) ph34r.gif ) and finally, some intergration with Lotus Notes (ver. 6.3). ohmy.gif

Sharp ROM and Cacko are good but will age quickly now with the end of the line. I've read the views on the forum about OZ, pdaXrom and OpenBSD and find them interesting but I've no experience with them. rolleyes.gif

Cheers in advance. cool.gif

Sorry for all the smilies - I did say I had a three year old on my lap ohmy.gif blink.gif biggrin.gif

My son sends the exclamation mark (but it was a tough choice between it and the HEART.

It's hard to recommend any specific ROM. Just like a good pair of pants you have to try them on before buying them. PdaXrom is good and has great apps that would handle your needs. Not sure about integration with Lotus Notes however it does have TuxPaint. My 3 year old could play that on my Z for about an hour and be entertained. biggrin.gif

my 2 cents: I have found OZ to be the best for security. With non-root user and login required it makes it more safe than other distro's/ROMS (out of the box).

Just to add another penny to the pot smile.gif, you'd specifically want OZ-GPE. OZ-OPIE runs as root, whereas GPE prompts for a new user at install.
