A suggestion box to port this to would be a Philips Velo 1.
It uses a 3.3V 32-Bit MIPS R3910 RISC processor @36MHz. It would
be a real challenge due to the fact that this is a diskless system
so Linux/X would have to be reduced to 8 Meg. Moreover, there is
only 4 Meg RAM (mine has 8 however). It would have to be installed
via a 8 Meg ROM "minicard" that is easily added to the palmtop
internally. I know this would introduce the problem of hardware
costs, but people have been buying CDs for years now. It is also
going to be a hassle during the porting process. :(
It should also be noted that the Velo 1 is in its declining
days. It will be replaced shortly with the Velo 500 model
(75MHz, 32-bit MIPS-based Philips PR31700 RISC processor) and is
expected to hit the marketplace in the March/April timeframe.
I request the Velo 1 port because I already own one.
I would be happy to assist in anyway that I could. I have
spent time hacking kernel and/or user code and enjoyed it. This
would present itself as an opportunity to learn something new.
Please free me from the grips of the evil WindowsCE.
