AllLinuxDevices: Century Software Enhances Linux Alternative to Pocket PC

Nov 09, 2000, 03:53 (0 Talkback[s])

"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."
