Ooops, I realized this list doesn't have the context for this.
I've been working on embedded Linux as a hobby for a few years. One of the
devices I work on is Agenda VR3; see http://www.agendacomputing.com or
http://www.agendacomputing.de/ . Quick summary: the VR3 is a 66MHz
MIPS-based Linux box with 8M RAM, 16M flash, and a 160x240 greyscale
display. It sells for $180-$250. The standard distribution uses X and the
FLTK widget set, with some additional widgets and libraries.
I truly hate writing applications in C or C++, so I've been looking for a
plausible higher level language to use on these embedded devices. On a
previous project, a linux distro for the VTech Helio (75MHz MIPS 8M RAM 2M
flash), I used the W window system and Tcl as a scripting language.
http://vhl-tools.sourceforge.net/ if you're curious. For various practical
and ideological reasons I don't like Tcl much.
