Developer's perspective on PocketLinux

Author: JT Smith

LinuxDevices.com adds a fifth part of its series on Linux on PDAs, this one on PocketLinux. "One of my main reservations about PocketLinux therefore
concerns its programming model, which makes good software
engineering difficult, and which makes it hard to take
advantage of the body of Linux software that is available.
Unless the PocketLinux combination of XML and Java becomes
popular on the desktop -- a prospect that seems unlikely --
no such desktop/handheld cross-pollination will occur, and
PocketLinux development will remain a narrow specialty."
