    Smile vmware for iphone?
    It would be incredible if anyone could get a way for us to run windows on the iphone. I know this would be possible since it was done on the psp, and maybe we could even get drivers for it and text input. does anyone else think this would be a good idea?

    It would certainly be possible to emulate Windows CE, but the speed would make the whole endeavor pointless.
    Get "iPod & iTunes for Dummies", it'll change your life.

    with windows 95 running on the psp the speeds werent to slow, and maybe if windows would be to slow; then maybe we would run ubuntu or dsl. I know the specs to run ubuntu arent that bad. maybe even run a live cd iso.

    Ubuntu would be great plus get Beryl to run on top of that. I use Ubuntu 7.04 on my Laptop plus sometimes XP for iTunes.

    im glad someone thinks its a good idea, now if we can get a developer to try to undertake such a task. Theres so many other things we could do with our phones if we got ubuntu running. I personally have used it before and thought it was great.
