Just want to plug my Zubuntu project a bit here as well
I'm heading for a 1.0 release. Quite some progress has been made.The LXDE desktop is speedy and simple, it fits the Zaurus very well. Compared to Gnome or even XFCE it is blazing fast, I played around with the LXLauncher as well. I leave it in, but it won't be enabled on default. Maybe it will by the time I get used to it. Zubuntu currently lacks a decent set of PIM applications. A bit odd maybe, because for me that's the most important set of applications when using the Zaurus on a daily basis
