iPaq heats up with Inferno OS

Author: JT Smith

ZDNet Enterprise Linux: "nferno, an operating system originally developed by Bell
Labs for devices such as set top boxes and telephones,
has been ported to Compaq's iPaq handheld computer.

The port of the operating system--which can also be run
as an application on platforms including Windows, Linux
and Solaris -- will be demonstrated at the Usenix Annual
Technical Conference 2001 in Boston, Massachusetts,
on Thursday and Friday. The port includes wireless
networking, a virtual machine, a Web browser with HTML
3.2, JavaScript 1.1, and a full development environment,
running on less than 3MB of Flash memory."
