Linuxworld And Pdaxrom:
« on: February 24, 2005, 03:59:46 pm »
I was at linux world boston this year and there were alot of interesting exhibits to see. but very important aspect of linux wasn't there, pda's. There was one stand with a little bit of embedded hardware that supported linux, but nothing that made it shine or let people know something like pdaXrom exists. I don't know where everyone on this list is from, but Linuxworld NY is coming in a few months.

Does anyone else think pdaXrom should make an appearance at LinuxWorld?

If anyone else has an interest, I would be very happy to spend a few days hacking the distro with some other ppl in person, and promoting this distro so people can see what is out there. I know the people who saw me with my C860 at the time were amazed by it.

I look forward to seeing what other people think, and especially the core developers, as there support would be important, even if some or all of them couldn't attend. If this idea takes off I'd be willing and able to make it up there from central PA to help run a stand.

Hay relm I was there too and I'm with you, it would have been great to see some pda tables there.  nomater what the distro it would have been fun to see.  some booth I dont know who gave away an 860 I did see the person who got it, and he wasent to sure what to do with it, it was still in japanese I think, so I pointed him here.

I had a number of poeple stop me about my 860 as well, expecialy at the booths I was using it to take notes at.

the one upside I did see was that Trolltech/QT had a booth, and some of the people there ware very knolageable as far as working with and developing on the Z.

insadently are you local to boston or just up for the show.

I was there too!  Sadly no one noticed my C750

I would have liked to have seen some kind of Zaurus representation there, but since the Z has zero US presence...

At the very least I think handhelds.org should have had a booth.

Too bad I have a sucky windoze job, I had to take a day off from work to go Thursday.  I need a *NIX job so I can go to all 4 days next year!
