Wait. Wait. Dont be upset, Lucas.
Your idea is right. But you dont understand what to use it.
What you wrote is, probably running PDA simulator on your PC,
and it resembles a CE PDA simulator of Visual Studio CE.
I dont think this is not so much usuful. Why we have to simulate
it? Probably they use it for only PDA programming.
( or you have secret ideas about a usage of your idea?)
But, when coLinux has a susupending function ( and this is planned),
runing coLinux on x86 PDA has another interesting posibility. And I
believe this is much more useful than yours.
When coLinux has a suspending function, probably "live migration" becomes
possible. It is like this:
Suspending on PC A -> a susupenging image -> resuming on PC B.
And if "PC A" is PDA, it is also very interesting. It is like this:
Using PDA on a street -> returing home -> resuming a session on PC
-> Using a session with big display and fast CPU -> migrating the
session to PDA -> you go out with PDA -> ....
How about this?, Lucas.
In other words, if coLinuxPDA comes, you can use your PC as
a new generation of docking bay. It has CD drive, HDD, ethernet, KB,
and fast CPU, and VGA, and display.
BTW, I dont know if there is x86 PDA.
