Every ROM/Distribution has it's issues. The fact is Angstrom is still
being developed. The rest of everything for a poodle is not. I have
yet to find anythibng that has every ap I need. Openzaurus/opie is most
promising from a should work prospective but then I can't install
konqueror and have it runnable. There is this beta qtopia ROM that has
a VNC client and I was able to install qpdf and qpsword with it so it
proved the most useful, but I can't install anything to SD with that ROM
and there is no browser included with it.
