The death of pdaXrom, too bad, but long live... well, my bet would be debian
What do you mean "the death of pdaXrom?" It's not dead to the best of my knowledge (Did I miss some major announcement?).
I didn't say it's dead yet. Hey, I'm still using it myself. But by telling the development is put "on hold" due to a shift in direction seems to me an end-of-life (pre-)announcement.
I hope InSearchOf surprises us differently, but personally I don't think so. We'll just have to wait and see.

Ouch, this hurts!
Well, first I have to show my admiration for all of you that have kept (and I hope will keep) pdaXrom running. I understand how big task is it.
I should say that the zaurus is a kind of "travel laptop" for me, a laptop I can carry in my pocket. I don't use it as a PDA, I already have a pdaphone that I use for all my PIN needs, I use the zaurus as a pocket unix machine, this makes it unique.
Looking at the future I think it would be a very good idea having Angstrom as the base for the a new pdaXrom, there are advantages:
-- They provide a very good, clean and clear build system, why don't use it?
-- They write kernel code and add functionality, I suppose that if something different is needed for pdaXrom, it is easier to add only that functionality than trying to put together 150 patches and trying to make some sense from them...

Basically pdaXrom would build an easy to use system over the (strong) shoulders of Angstrom (look at how well Ubuntu stands on the shoulders of Debian).  

Maybe pdaXrom need more contributers as well, here I can speak in my own name: I've been trying to contribute since I bought my zaurus in Akihabara more than 2 years ago, but I have a very big problem, my time. I am sure this is a problem pdaXrom devs have as well, but I cannot make it better.That does not mean I cannot contribute: I can do small things in the short periods I have some free time, and I think there are many people like me.
Maybe it would be a good idea to have the problems listed in one place,  broken down in very small, self contained pieces, with some kind of difficulty scoring (difficult, average, easy) and a "tutor", somebody who knows how to solve it and give hints of how to do it. People could take the piece they want, ask to the tutors if they have any problem, solve it and commit afterwards.... learning in the process as well. This way you can "morph" a tecchy Angstrom in a more friendly pdaXTrom...

I don't know, I just wanted to be useful.

Yeah, tell us InSearchOf, what is going on behind the scenes!

BTW, pdaXrom could benefit from OE without having to join Angstrom.  Sonkei did just that.  It is possible to create an overlay in OE where you define anything what you want to do differently, but you still benefit from any changes in areas that you choose to share the base.  If I am not mistaken, openmoko was the first project to make use of this overlay feature.  Give it a try.  pdaXrom would be back in business in no time.

Started back working on pdaXrom 3 days ago... the planned move didnt go a well as planned but it could still happen... but I'm going to continue chugging away at it...
I agree, just as much as everyone else, that all the devs need to get together and get on the same page (including myself) to keep this distro running strong.... please feel free to PM me with anything questions you may have

Sorry for the delay uneventful delay...

As default wm, please conside openbox + feh + conky, since there are not gtk2 program, use less memory.
openbox is high configurable, easy to add keybind and a pipe menu to support zaurus' special function.
conky is also. Please enable double buffer extension, it seems like BuildDBE in def file. Enable DBE make conky display better.

Ok.... Keep in mind I'm not speaking for the rest of the pdaXrom devs. But will NOT have anytime for the next few months to even start working on pdaXrom. Currently I just moved into a new position at my job and they didnt backfill my position so I'm doing the work of 2 people and it sucks... So that is where I'm at currently in my life and pdaXrom doesnt fit to nicely in there...

So to Zaurus community, I would like to say sorry and I will be back soon, but hopefully the rest of the devs will back fill in my, hopefully short, absence
