    In the DS scene alot of people are creating alot of usefull programs to make your ds a multimedia device much like an PDA. That's why I was thinking about how great it was to use all the programmes that already exist with touchscrene devices in somewhat the same shape. Instead of creating a DS version of all the programms 1 by 1 wouldnt it be great if the Symbian platform it self could be emulated! Writing, navigator and agenda software would be added to the DS software library [​IMG]

    I was thinking about the s60 3rd edition OS because this a high tech OS that work on mobilephones (so i guessed they maybe arent that hardware demading [​IMG])

    But since I have no clew about emulators if something like this would be remotely possible..

    My main question is could the DS handle an OS like this?

    I think if we can get the DragonMinded and The guy who made Moonshell working on it they would probably make something that surpasses that OS,yeah i think a ds can handle that OS tho.

    I'd love it if there was a program to play JAR files on the DS.

    They already have two operating systems for the DS, DSLinux (currently no GUI) and GEOS (Currently only works on M3 cards.)

    GEOS has it's own built-in graphical editor (Think MS paint) and text editor (think Notepad), along with some other programs.

    DSLinux currently can launch Unix-based apps, and has its own built-in text editor (command-based.)

    The idea of the OS simulation is that you can instantly use alot off programms that where specialy designed for small touchscreens. (smartphones, pda's ) So that would make it only usefull on the lowerscreen...

    JAR is actually java. And yeah, the java platform runs on mobile phones.
