I am also looking at getting a Zaurus, cos the OS doesn't elevate the cost. However, before I do, I need to know whether it is possible to connect to an RS232 device using the USB to Serial lead and a VT100 emulator This would make life a lot easier than powering up my lappy... Any suggestions?

Also, has anyone managed to sync to Linux? I notice that Mandy 9.0 has kpilot, but is there a Zaurus equivalent.

WOW!! I just saw this for the 1st time today, and I must say... ME WANT!! I think I'll buy it with my tax refunds.

I like the idea of having a server grade OS in the palm of my hand. I was wondering, could I install httpd (or is it included) and run a web site off it? LOL
