Old hardware may brick and die, but good
software will live on forever. As if the growing MAME community weren't enough to prove this aphorism, news coming out
of the 2006 Worldwide Newton Conference (yes, you read that right) indicates that a stable emulation of the good old Newton OS is just around the corner for Linux PDAs. On the first day
of the conference, Einstein (a Newton emulator for OS X) developer Paul Guyot showed off his successful port of the
still-kicking OS on a Linux-powered Sharp Zaurus. While this project is still in super-beta mode, the
Einstein-for-Linux app is currently available for public download--for those who want to downgrade their device's
already-poor handwriting recognition.
