My guess is that (a) they aren't interested in supporting other
platforms, or at least WinCE since MS isn't returning the favor. The
Palm's a more Mac-like platform anyway but (b) Rosetta probably takes
more a faster/powerful processor than the Palm has, or even most WinCE
boxes. I could be wrong, though - Paragraph's cursive engine
(Calligrapher) that originated on the Newton is available for WinCE
platforms but I don't know how well/fast it works. MS now has the rights
to Calligrapher (bought from Vadem)
