Tweak3D has posted a review on the Linux based Sharp Zaurus SL-5500 PDA
What exactly does this thing run? A version of the Linux kernel (2.4 series) and what's known as "Embedix". Basically, it's just a specific version of the kernel for embedded devices, as well as apps and all to go along with it. If you're a true Linux hax0r and you want to run the really cool stuff on it, download the OpenZaurus image and tweak to your heart's content! Sitting on top of all this is Qtopia. This was designed by the cool people at TrollTech. This makes the Zaurus look just as cool and slick as all those other PDAs out there.
