The reason I love PalmOS is because it's so simple to use. I've been tempted
by WinCE in the past, and the PSion Epoc too, but somehow they always seemed
to have too much baggage. I love that my old Palmpilot Pro is still a viable
computer.. 3 years after I got it (I've also got a handspring too..) Try saying
that about most moder PC's in 3 years time!!??!!

Whilst the OS of this Sharp machine may be brilliant, it will still never beat
the simplicity that PalmOS brings.. and with a Pascal compiler the possibilities
are endless!!! Heh, heh, heh ;)
