Linux Userland for Jornada 820

Whereas the kernel is specific to the model, most any Linux distribution for any ARM platform will work on any other ARM platform that has sufficient memory and persistent storage.

You may have a look at userland distributions for other ARM devices: the most promising project is OpenEmbedded. See also familiar, Gentoo, pdaXrom, etc. Apart from that, see pages about the Zaurus SL-C700, Psion5MX, iPAQ, HP Jornada 720, etc. And if you have big enough a CF memory card (or a CF harddisk!), you can even install debian-arm (e.g. bootstrapping from PocketWorkstation)! For more information, ask Google, or see on, etc.
