This is squeak. The dynapad images run just fine on a desktop vm. Download
and feel the joy. They're even nicely twincy. The only thing missing is
interaction with the pda evironment, which, if things are done 'right',
i.e., all in squeak :), isn't a problem.
Not need for fancy schmancy emulators!
What's trickier is making the pda apps well integrated with a regular
squeak image, as the UIs at least are fairly micro-optimized for the small
screen. but if you just want a virtual PDA, it's here today.
