I'd love to see View on a handheld, and, and a Zaurus user, I'd be happy to participate in any beta testing phase. I think the main problem is the amount of memory REBOL/View needs. Don't be fooled by the small download file: REBOL unfolds into a very large space in memory. On my machine (Windows, not Linux, so these numbers will vary): -- Just loading REBOL/View takes up 3 megabytes. -- Typing Desktop takes another 2 megabytes -- And, with 768 meg of main memory, I don't have enough to try: mold system none But good luck! I'd like to see it work. And, I suspect in a year or two, handhelds will have memory to match today's desktops. Sunanda
