Welcome to the AllLinuxDevices weekly roundup for September 27,
2000 ESC prompted a spate of announcements we're still in the
middle of sorting out. A visit to the front page is in order to catch up
on all the news, but here are some of the highlights from the past
week of ALD:
TrollTech has partnered with Opera and Korean embedded firm
PalmPalm to produce a wireless platform. We spoke with Havaard
Nord, CEO of TrollTech, to learn a little more about his company's
involvement through their Qt/Embedded toolkit:
'TrollTech's Qt/Embedded: "Consumer-oriented finish" for Handheld
Linux' is a look at TrollTech's quest to bring a GUI to Linux
An Indian trust is working to bring
StrongARM-based, wireless Linux handhelds to India, with a
special focus on previously unwired rural areas. The machine will
be based on open standards both in the SDK used to program for it,
and the extensible design of the hardware itself.
Busybox 0.47 was released, providing new functionality and some
bugfixes to the package, which provides compact UNIX utilities for
use on embedded systems.
