Yes, I'm still whining about the Newton. But a thought occured to me; the newton 2000/2100 was based on StrongARM processors and the PocketPC uses X-scale, a new version of the StrongARM. Provided someone had legal access to Newton source code, how difficult would it be getting the NewtonOS running on PocketPC hardware? As long as the OS runs fine on it, all the apps should run with no modification, that's the nature of newton script. I'm sure some low level things will need to change, but wouldn't a robust HAL allow the NewtonOS to run pretty much seamlessly?
