[REBOL] Re: PalmOS Support

From: kenneth:nwinet at: 23-May-2001 22:49

Thanks for the link Tom. They've made it as an onboard application which is a bad idea for a developer (we may not like keyboards but they are productive.) Besides which, the Palm is not really a hardened product. It doesn't wear well and is easily abused. We sell a hardened version and one of our saleman still managed to crack the screen on one the first day he got it in his hands. ;-) So if Rebol did get implemented for the Palm I would hope they would not forgo a pc emulator and cross compiler. Although, I'm not sure how the Rebol paradigm would fit that environment.

Which I suspect will always be the case.

Thanks again, Ken.
