You can plug both standard and microdrive type compactflash into the machine
directly. No need for an adaptor. see www.psion.com for more details.
In theory, once someone has worked out the hardware addresses used, and how
the Series 7 boot loader works, you should be able to use a variant of
ArmLinux. There is work proceeding on this sort of thing on the CLPS7110

If you think of it though, this could actually be your daily use machine,
when you get to work etc, plug in the external monitor, keyboard etc. The
price is around ~?1800, and if you are willing to shell out for the Series 7
(over a grand), this could be a far more funtional replacement.
if you are near Mr Calculator, pop down and have a look at one (if they have
a new one in stock), you might be impressed!
