Can a Zaurus run other Operating Systems?
« on: November 17, 2003, 09:02:26 pm »
Hello, I was wondering is it possible to install different operating systems on a Zaurus C760 for example like instead of running Linux, I run Palm OS or Window Mobile?

If you can do this does anyone have a step by step as I am willing to try it on my C760...
Also where can you download a rom image for other operating systems for a PDA ?


Thanks...
Zaurus C860
Running X11 Kathrin ROM
Socket Wireless Card

CF: 128MB Simple, 256MB Lexar, 256MB Integral
SD: 64MB Panasonice, 256MB Integral, 1Gig Integral

Nope, not unless you license it so from Microsoft/PalmSource. Not unless you are a truly wizardly hacker, anyway.

Well, I\'m sure someone could port BSD to the Zaurus, but why?
