This is what I want to do with my zaurus:
gaim, browser internet, emulators, word documents, kistmet, aircrack, and other self compiled things or things I want from the package manager
Just to shed some light on your use case scenarios:
- gaim is now pidgin
- emulators: Do not expect performance wonders when emulating machines which are based on a higher level than the Zīs XScale architecture.
- word documents: On the small screen office work imho is a PITA. I try to use it with our corporate architecture documents and excel sheets but ...
- wireless tooling and sniffing is ok.
I found it very convenient to use the Z as a small companion with supported tooling, linke outliners (eg. notecase) and even mindmapping (vym) as well as note taking and drawing instant sketches with xournal.
Plus email (claws), rss feed and news reading.
All this is possible with Angstrom/X11. GPE for me is only a more or less convienent window manager with some setup tools.
I hope this helps.
