QNX chugs more memory than Windows! The fact it is that it's MICROKERNEL so it should be made for absolute great performance in limited environments. But it isn't! They require a P3-650! HAHAHA bollocks.
QNX4 IS excellent, but the RTOS is completely fucked up.

Turrican on the GBA? hmm INTERESTING

BTW anybody has a cheap PocketPC device to sell? I need to develop applications for it
I already sold my Jornada 680, but that ran Windows CE 2.0 anyway.

I want one running Pocket PC, because the Flash Player is available only for PocketPC...

Is there an emulator I could try so I save some mad cash for now? :P

Well, the Amiga Inc guys keep peddling that Amiga games on the all the pocket devices more than anything else, so I suppose it's kinda relevelant.

I was under the impression that Microsoft changed the name from Windows CE to Pocket PC. If I'm wrong then I stand corrected

I think your right jmmijo, I got sick of all the upgrades & name changes of WindowsCE. PocketPC is just the latest version of Windows CE. My Jornada 680 ran Windows CE 2.0 and could not be upgraded to PocketPC so I sold it. I am out of the WindowsCE PDA's for now and back to Newton & Psion. Amiga Anywhere does look cool though. Maybe I will get a Sharp Zaurus and run it on that.

Thanks for that, I couldn't have explained it myself better
I would like an Amiga-powered PDA if the Flash player+plugin are released for that platform! I dont mind the OS, I just want a Flash-capable PDA.

Because AmigaDE will run under WindowsCE!!

(heh! got ya )

Anyway, what's so wrong about going a bit off topic here? Aren't you tired yet of reading all of IanS messages? Perhaps we interest him in talking about something else!

How do you like the Newton? Isn't that the old Apple product? Also who makes the Psion?

I guess I'm stuck with pretty much the Palm or the Handspring products

Yes, lets talk about something else. This topic is getting boring, especially as a lot of people seem to deny the existence of the 'NEW' Amiga hardware in the first place

A quick quiz... for my gratification only.

I have a machine by sitting by me. Designed and built in the '90s it has a 16 bit processor running at 7Mhz, it has a small, fast, multitasking OS and 512K of Ram. It's often connected to my PC via serial cable, and I have an external drive for it too. Any guesses as to what it is?

I've tried to avoid Win CE/Pocket PC. It's a good idea in theory, but I'd rather have that new Sony Clie. The one with built in keyboard and swivel screen, built in digital camera... drool, drool

Maybe a Sharp Zaurus would be nice too. Can't say that I actually NEED either of them, as I probably wouldn't use them very much. And I think they are far too expensive. I once knew a girl who bought a second hand Psion 3a (for 100) to store her diary details in... because she kept losing her paper diary!!!

Btw Akira... I've had Win 98 running on a 486 DX266 (slowly) and an AMD K5 100 ran it fine. Why people complain about how slow it is I'm not sure, unless you start loading up anti virus, firewalls, Norton utilities etc etc. Just keep it fed with plenty of ram, and it's quite happy. Now as to stability... that's a different matter. But then amigas crash quite a lot too (well mine does anyway).

I suppose this was a dish you once saw on the Galloping Gourmet or perhaps even Julia Childs

As for me, give me Jumbalia or give me death
