Unfortunately my Zaurus (SLA-300) is not supported, otherwise I would happily try your software.
What we really require is a ROM 3.10 (I think ROM 1.20 for the C7xx series is the same) and enough free memory space. For example a SL5500G is filled from approx. 25% to 80% meaning we need enough space to install about 20MBytes.
1. I think your package addresses more the Mac users who would like to have a PDA with the same look/functionality/simplicity/abbility the port applications with their computer. Therefore yoou should pay more attention also to the way your system looks.
Exactly. We have paid first attention to make the system running and implement some basic features so that we can start to work on the real look&feel.
For example the icons are awfull, you should contact a icon designer or something like this (may be some guy from IconFcatory) to design some modern/photorealistic (may be) icons for your system to make it more appealing.
100% agree. We will pay more attention on this from now on.
Also the window decorations I think are too big, taking to much screen space. Also here, may be you will drope
We have taken a not so recent Window Manager (mlvwm) which simply pastes MacOS 8/9 like decorations.
2. When the product is mature enough, I think it should be made available as a ROM update/upgrade/installation, but keeping the possibility to install/run the usual qt-based software available for zaurus.
This would release some of the memory burden although it makes installation more difficult.
3. How are the syncing possibilities with the mac/linux/windows based PIM applications?
We are working on modifying ZMacSync to handle the myPDA system as well. It is a little simpler as we do not have to translate the PIM database formats back and forth. I can't promise when, but it is definitely on the agenda for the next release.
