PS: the last official patch to the 2.4.36.2 kernel series dates from 24 Feb 2008.

And notice that is has absolutely no support for ARM based cpus or devices. In fact, no 2.4 kernel has ARM support.

Eh?   How does it come that 2.4 is running on millions of ARM systems including the Sharp Zaurus?

Maybe, the 2.4 kernel does not need any more daily support because it is simply mature enough to work?

Yes, that's the old discussion...
I definitely fall into the category prefering mature software over new software.
- This is why I still run Cacko despite zero development in years.  I keep trying the new software and keep finding it's too unstable for my personal taste.  I do keep trying, though.  (grin)

OTOH, a smartphone without a QWERTY keyboard is not really useful for me.
- I wouldn't give a dollar for a smart phone without a dedicated thumbboard at the very least, regardless of any other consideration.  It could be a 2GHz device with a gig of RAM, Wifi, Bluetooth, 4G, and have a lifetime free service plan.  If I can't type on it, it will never replace the Zaurus.  If I have to carry Hiro around all I need is what I have now ... a simple "dumb" phone.
- But this is obviously only me, given what's out there now.  I just don't understand how people can use them!  (chuckle)  That's my half nyble...
| I shed a tear for the passing of Hiroshi; he served me well
| Zaurus zealot since Nov 2002, PDA user since Oct 1991
| Replaced Z with UMID BZ February 2010
