Acually, looks to me like he used to use a Palm and has switched to
WinCE, so is arguing to justify his choice. Notice how many of his
WinCE "disadvantages" are cancelled by noting an application which
fixes them. None of the Palm's are. And 30,000 Palm apps versus 20,000
for WinCE? Every other estimate I've seen gives more like a 5 to 10
to 1 ratio.
In short, really pathetic.
