This isn't really true.  Morphic is quite usable on the Casio E-105.  The only
problem is that screen taps equate to mouse clicks, and there is no keyboard to
provide <shift>, <command>. <option> modifiers so you can get at the Halos.
Other than that, with Andreas' latest build of the WinCE VM, it is quite nice.

P.S.  What a fine surname you have!
