I used kdepimpi on my Linux Zaurus and found it very full-featured. I primarily used the datebook app. I keep hoping someone with more skill and time than I will port it to FR. It was built on top of Qtopia so it shouldn't be that formidable a task. -- Craig

There is a problem with suspending causing the partition table to be corrupted on the SD card. There are some workarounds that seem to prevent this from happening, but I don't know whether they apply to Qtopia. See http://docs.openmoko.org/trac/ticket/1802 Craig

In my non-exhaustive testing of FSO, I have found that daily builds generally have significant issues, so unless you are installing a FSO milestone release, then I would not recommend FSO. I think FSO milestone 3 should be appearing soon, so do check it out before you make your final decision.
