Agreed, though CE can only fit into tiny spaces if you hack away parts of the OS. When installin in truely tiny spaces it is usually for an embedded device with a spcific purpose so you can build a rom image with most things stripped out.
Modern CE - if you don't include any OS software components but all the files and dll's required to make the OS with GUI work - even if you compress the OS would like still take 12-16Mb of ROM.
IIRC CE has quite a lot in common with Win95.
I am currently building a custom rom for my StrongArm CPU'd HPC (like a mini netbook with 7" screen). So I know how big full CE with GUI and normal OS components and dll's is.
My problem is trying to fit all the software I want into the 32Mb rom now
Your thoughts on ROL's Select 5i1 Following the release of Select 5i1, powered by RISC OS 6.14, by RISCOS Ltd, what do you make of its new features - the headliners being a 64K colour mode and the ability to slide sub-menus to the left if a menu is opened too close to the right-hand edge of the desktop. 5 comments, latest by jimnagel on 24/2/09 12:32PM.
