[REBOL] Re: PalmOS Support

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.
