No bashes retail companies like HP or compaq like i do however i just found something that completely changes my miond about compaq...
Well two things
1. Handhelds.org is the #1 place for the current pda linux projects and is hosted by compaq. Open source from a retail company???
2. as if linux wasn't enough, compaq started the itsy project. This is to be the best handheld pc ever. The current prototypes are using 50ns edo. EDO on a palm! to make it better, this is the first OPEN SOURCE HARDWARE i have ever heard of! you can go to this web site http://research.compaq.com/wrl/proje...y.html#related
and download the complete instructions on how to build one. open source hardware, beautiful
