"Software will also make it easier for developers to scale to a
variety of resource-constrained platforms including set-tops,
phones, PDAs, and other consumer devices for wireless, in-car,
gaming, and home automation applications."
"Computer scientists at Endeavors Technology have successfully
developed a highly optimized, open source port of Python to the
Palm OS platform to stimulate interest in creating Python-based
applications for Palm handheld computers and other devices that use
the Palm operating system. This complements Endeavors' peer-to-peer
software development initiative to make "unequal" devices, such as
PDAs, PCs, servers, information appliances, and Internet-ready
phones, into peers so that software applications can potentially
connect to billions of other devices through a common
"Recognizing one-size doesn't fit all, Endeavors will work with
device manufacturers and software developers to extend this small
footprint, interoperable virtual machine (VM) across a multitude of
hardware beyond the Palm. The Pippy VM is perfectly suited to scale
across a variety of resource-constrained platforms. Pippy will make
it easier for companies to build, port, and market new
network-interoperable application programs while complementing
other home automation (HAVi) and open services gateway initiative
(OSGI) standards initiatives."
