Zaurus - pdaXrom / Where would you like to see pdaXrom go?
« on: April 11, 2004, 09:14:02 pm »
I think pdaXrom is absolutely on the right track. The QT environment is nice and simple for casual users, but lets face it, most of us are power users and want/need an X environment.

The biggest problem with the QT environment is software - there\'s precious little out there that\'s worth using. The promise of an X environment is the vast pool of high quality software that already exists.

Two things I would like to see that would make me switch over to pdaXrom permanently:

1) A complete overhaul of ipkg - I don\'t think it is robust enough to support a full blown unix distribution with the massive amount of software and dependencies out there.

2) a well designed and maintained package distribution system (I know it\'s early days, but having all packages in a single web page isn\'t going to work for long). IMHO the sucess of Debian is in it\'s package distribution system.

3) Ok, one more thing - QT application support  I think this would seal the deal even for casual users.
