SubjectLinux to replace Windows CE?
Is anyone working of a port of Linux to palmtops/handheld PCs? I'm thinking
of those 4-32MB RAM, Windows CE computers.
Many of them use MIPS processors (Philips Velo, Philips Nino, Casio
Cassiopeia E*), some others (all HP, Casio Cassiopeia A*) use SH-3
processors. Since linux already supports MIPS processors, shouldn't porting
to these computers just be a matter of writing LCD display, touch screen,
keyboard and (optionally) CompactFlash, IrDA, and PC Card drivers, and a
bootloader (or whatever else would be necessary)?
