Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Century Software Embedded Technologies is announcing a freely
redistributable binary distribution of our Microwindows based PDA
operating environment and toolkit for the iPAQ. This distribution
provides a fully functional screentop, web browser, terminal
emulator, popup keyboard and handwriting recognition as the basis
for development and execution of other Microwindows-based graphics
applications for the iPAQ."
"The binary distribution is available in RPM format for both the
iPAQ itself and for x86-based Linux desktops running X11. The iPAQ
binaries are downloaded onto the iPAQ using the serial link and
replace the original operating environment."
"The desktop X11 binaries allow the evaluation and demonstration
of the entire iPAQ environment within a 240x320 window on the
desktop under KDE or Gnome. This is accomplished using the
Microwindows X11 screen driver with all applications compiled for
x86 rather than ARM."
