The big news
out of the Worldwide Newton
Conference this weekend is that Paul Guyot has successfully gotten the Newton OS up and running on a Sharp Zaurus. This emulation project
is called "Einstein," and a beta is available for
download today. If you have a Linux-based PDA with X11 support, you can run the Newton OS! You can view the slides
from Paul's presentation online [link:PDF]
As Steve said, the soul of the Macintosh is not the hardware used to run it, but in the software. The same is true of the Newt. The project is still very much a beta, so don't expect your Sharp to function just as your 2100 does. Still, this is quite a feat. Well done, Paul!
