I have seen the future, my friends…

I can’t believe that someone has finally done it after all these years, but below is a screenshot of my Newton MessagePad 2100 emulating a Palm Pro (PalmOS 2.0 ROM):

The emulator is still unreleased pending bugfixes, adding features like serial/IR support and working Graffiti, and clearing up some licencing issues. But it exists. And it does work. It’s amazing to see actually working. This is all the result of the work of Brian Parker, up-and-coming Newton developer. My hat is off to you, Brian (and thanks for sneaking me a copy so I could confirm it).
