Linux on PDAs

Which Linux ports for PDAs are available?
Which GUIs and applications exist already?
What's the difference between Linux and other PDA operating systems?
How does PDA hardware work with Linux (IrDA,USB,BlueTooth,PCMCIA,MP3)?
Which direction will the Linux PDA development go?

Alongside traditional PDA operating systems, Linux is gaining more and more interest among developers and users of mobile computer devices.

The iPAQ made by COMPAQ was the first available Linux PDA in Europe. Since than more Linux PDAs have entered the market. Though the most important features (X-Windows, handwriting-recognition, power-management) are working now, Linux on PDAs is still in its development stage. There aren't many end-user applications available, but development platforms are available and progress is fast.

This lecture gives a survey of the current state of development and describes the advantages of Linux as an operating system for PDAs.
