Why there is not a PocketDOS version for Palm OS handhelds? Is it comming or never will be? As developer, I have a big problem with this issue.

Any body know?

Dear Sir,

We don't have, and have never had any intentions of making a version of PocketDOS for PalmOS. Why? Because there has never been any demand. There is barely sufficient demand on Windows CE/Mobile, which has a MUCH larger user base and whose user base is much more tied into MS products than users of platforms such as PalmOS and EPOC32. Although the 'engine' part of PocketDOS can be (and has been) relatively easily compiled for other platforms, the amount of work required to produce the UI for other (marginal) platforms is prohibitive.

As a developer, you can appreciate that putting large amounts of effort into producing a product for a platform that you are neither familiar with or expect to make many sales on, is pointless. Of course, that doesn't even factor in that the future of PalmOS is anything but assured. And although you may disagree with our perception of demand, let us assure you that the demand for a PalmOS version is *significantly* less than that for a EPOC32/Symbian version, which frankly, is not enough to justify the effort for a port.

Thank you for your interest.
