I disagree just a bit on the importance of memory.  Without some serious
tweaking, most apps will not allow themselves to be installed on CF or SD.
That means that you may have effectively infinite data storage, but your
choice of programs to keep installed is limited.  Unless that limitation
was changed in either Opie or the 5600.
