OK, I know it just came out. But does anyone have an opinion on the

Microsoft has taken over the world? Will my eyes fall out after
reading a book or two on the color 320x480 screen? Is the operating
system still stuck in the 68K days, or is it actually a reasonable
I was thinking about an iPaq with Linux, but they're bulky and have
lousy battery life. I'm really not sure they're an improvement over
schlepping my laptop, to be honest.
