Why is everyone reinventing the wheel?
Its probably the same reason why nobody could build, launch and successfully return a Saturn V / Apollo mission today.
I have read some years ago that all the blueprints are still in the NASA archives on microfiche. But you simply can't buy some materials and standard parts any more or nobody has kept special production machines in tidy conditions.
It is the same reason why there are nearly no Linux compatible WLAN CF cards on the market any more. You can't buy the chips because they had not been ROHS compliant. And nobody has seen a large enough market for a new redesign of these chips.
So, there is no chip. And no (new) CF card. And SD cards are better anyway. So, why build anything on the Zaurus design which focusses around CF?
