The Zaurus is not dead!

One major issue of lost awareness has been solved - finding application
software: http://www.handheld-linux.com/swi/

It is an open system in the sense that software authors can submit
applications incl. screen shots and change requests - but everything is
reviewed/approved to keep spam on a low level.

Users can create an account to get notificaion e-mails for updates on
subscribes applications - or to apply for moderator status.
