I just popped in to post the same link but it looks like others are aware already.
Here's a memorable link:

It's the end of Zaurus production, but the Zaurus lives on.
I propose we all lift a pint tonight to one of the best PDA's that has ever been made.
Few devices have taught us Linux and patience so well.
*Cheers* to the Zaurus for a hell of a ride.

the good thing is that there are many zauruses (zaurii) around, and most of us will continue to use them for one purpose or another for quite some time since there's still nothing quite like it out there - it truly is a "cult classic" - despite the best efforts of Sharp!!!

I note that ebay prices on all models have remained good, thus "proving" my theory.

And also the community has been a magnificent success story. My thanks go to everyone here!

And a Merry Christmas to all Z users, I know I'm a day late.
What other PDA has such a nice keyboard and can have three operating systems on it at once and "tri-boot"?  
angstrom, zubuntu, cacko
Edit: It's not actually "tri-boot" (I made that up) It's using multiboot.

well done, and I'm genuinely still impressed at the hard work you and the mojo project are putting in.
