here (who control what software/hardware we use) chose WinCE, even though it

many of which are MIPS R4k cores tailored for embedded use. (eg
whereas the Palm V has a meesly 32MHz (correct me if I'm wrong
here). The Palm seemed faster when it came to doing operations,
which is no surprise.
And there's DEC Ultrix, or SGI IRIX 5 both of which will ran very
nicely on < 100MHz MIPS R4k, 16 or 32MB RAM class hardware... which
is strangely enough a very similar spec to current WinCE hardware..
