My dream machine will be combination of Mac's user-friendly design, linux's open source OS and Zaurus's reliable hardware.

Of course, they need to bring down the cost to become critical mass.

lol, good luck with that. but it is possible to install ubuntu on the original OQO. I'm not sure as to the hardware functionality, but once you've got a full fledged Linux OS, you can configure it however you want, and get it pretty close to looking like OS X if you so desire.
C3200(exiguitas) Angstrom Beta(version not designated)/GPE
SL-5500(immotus) OpenZaurus 3.5.4/GPE, OpenZaurus 3.5.4/Opie(loopmount)
1GB SD Card
128MB CF Card/8MB CF Card
Gentoo/Windows XP Home SP2

As is demonstrated by the person in the screenshot thread showing a Zaurus desktop that looks a LOT like OS X.
SL-C750- pdaXrom beta 1 (mostly unused)
