Nor should it be. There is no reason why you would want a handheld to run
Linux, is there ? It's like wanting your bike to have a 1 litre engine -
they are for different tasks.
I use Linux for development, heavy duty email & web browsing & OS
I use my PDA for looking stuff up, taking notes for doing stuff later,
playing games, converting numbers, as a pocket calculator, for taking down
directions (drawing program/map thing) and as a universal remote control. A
28Mhz CPU and 4MB of RAM is fine for this.
These are very different things. I'm not surprised that there isn't a big
market for pocket unix workstations.
