O'Reilly Network takes a look at the Yopy PDA, the third in its series on Linux PDA's. Besides the usual run down the specs, this review offers insight into an interesting design decision: G.Mate has decided to drop the W Window System for X.
"...Because of the incompatibility between W and X, not to mention the inability to import and export displays to W, the porting of applications has been significantly hindered. Despite complaints by developers on the Yopydeveloper.org mailing list, G.Mate stuck by its decision, arguing it provided faster displays and a commitment to other commercial parties to provide the W environment.
