Does anyone else see Virtual Acorn ported to the PDA market as being a worthy market? I I could use RISC OS on a mobile or handheld, I'd be as happy as the proverbial pig...

With my (very limited) knowledge of Windows Mobile, I'd see it's similarity accross a multitude of hardwares a major bonus and a good market for Virtual Acorn, although I'm sure people will correct me if I'm wrong...

My desire would be a Psion 5mx form factor (with colour screen) running RISC OS, or even fruitiion of the RON Project, and given the many (PPC) forum comments about Microsoft's Origami Project, it looks like I'm not the only one. I'd even sacrifice the keyboard for a decent handheld PDA... decent colour screen, battery life, and portability in one: so, a Jornada 720/728 with Virtual Acorn...

So, what about it? A Windows Mobile version of Virtual Acorn - anyone want it?
