Reading forum needs time, reading few forums needs more time. Keeping forum 
running need good admins and moderators to not have lot of spam and hack 

phpBB was good few years ago - now it has more bugs then any other used

NO, NO and once more: NO!

OESF forums users... too Zaurus centric, too Qtopia centric, too 
hack-it-hack-it-until-it-stop-working instead of doing things in proper 

By people like most of them I decided to not buy any Zaurus machine 
(hopefully Sharp decided to end this product line [1]) because any Z will 
get me into that forum again and again. Zaurus community is big but it is 
hard to find good embedded developers in it (but there are few persons 
which do good job).
