I have no idea what is so different about these three pages.

pdaXqtrom - X/Qt super jumbo
- a new X/QT super jumbo package which is based on existing base X/Qt packages and the specially compiled X/Qt packages from pdaXrom 1.1.0 beta1. Extends Sharp's ROM with a mini pdaXrom system running under X/Qt. It has a complete X/Qt runtime that is compatible with packages from the special pdaXrom feed. It also uses the same glib2 and gtk+ library versions as pdaXrom while maintaining compatability with Sharp's older glibc 2.2.2 version. This means that most applications available for pdaXrom will be able to be recompiled and run on pdaXqtrom. A native on-board compiler based on gcc 2.95.2 is also available as a companion tool to compile your own X/Qt applications from your Zaurus without needing a separate machine or setting up a cross tool chain.
- available as a mountable cramfs and/or squashfs image, as well as a tarball.

An interesting experience. X is started up as another application. Pressing Menu will pop up a menu to allow one to fullscreen X. A small fraction of the applications will appear in the regular menu. Pressing Menu again returns one to regular mode. Playing around, the Home button stopped letting me get back to my regular desktop. It would flash the tabs at the top of the screen and they would quickly go away.
Sound isn't handled within the X environment, it's still handled by the base system.
Playing with the equalizer settings crashes XMMS, even if the equalizer isn't turned on. =/
Because the instructions are scattered all over the place:
su mount -t cramfs -o loop /path/to/file.cramfs /path/to/mountpoint cd /path/to/mountpoint cp -a * /path/to/free_space cd /path/to/free_space ./pdaXqtrom-base-setup # Repeat the above with the apps cramfs, running `pdaXqtApps-setup` # Reboot. cd /path/to/free_space ./pdaXqtrom-base-setup # Repeat the above with apps, running `pdaXqtApps-setup`

If you do this installation to a removable card.. it's probably best to not remove it. =)
