"Amiga's next-generation operating system is at long, long
last to get a home of its own: Sharp's upcoming Linux version of
the Zaurus PDA."
"While Sharp's comments on the new device have focused on Linux
and Java as the twin foundations of its plan to return to the top
of the PDA totem pole, we noticed that the Java implementation the
company will use is UK software developer Tao's Intent Java
Edition, a kind of platform-independent hybrid Java virtual
"Now, Tao's technology also forms the basis of Amiga's Amiga
Digital Environment. Amiga DE is essentially an object-oriented
rich media operating environment designed to be scalable across
multiple devices from cellphone to PCs, and - thanks to Tao -
operable on almost any CPU."
