"PocketLinux is a new OS aimed at the handheld market. It
already runs on Compaq iPAQ's and VTech Helios. Jim Pick of the
PocketLinux project describes it, and some screenshots show it in
action on an iPAQ (MPEG video player and all.)"
"...It's still pretty young, but in the spirit of "release
early, release often", all the source is available now at
PocketLinux.com (plus .debs and RPMs). There isn't much
documentation yet though - but it will come."
"I'm extremely impressed with the amount of core functionality
the guys here at Transvirtual have been able to shovel into such a
small footprint. It's got the Linux kernel (of course), the Kaffe
virtual machine + libraries, an application framework built around
an XML parser, and a few embryonic applications. It seems like a
good mix so far."
