AsiaBizTech: Linux Programs to Run on Sharp’s Zaurus PDA

Axe Inc. developed “zxLinux” software that enables users of
Sharp Corp.’s Zaurus PDA to run Linux software on their Zaurus
terminals.

“The company began to distribute the software free of charge on
its Web site (Japanese).”

“Sharp aims to add more applications for Zaurus to the existing
offerings of approximately 1,000 titles. The company expects more
Linux programmers will develop Zaurus applications by using the
Linux development environment from zxLinux. Also, Sharp has decided
to sell the “CodeWarrior for Zaurus” development environment from
U.S.-based Metrowerks Inc. to make it easier for programmers to
develop More Soft.”
