Apple discontinues Newton OS. Instead of seeing this as a glass-half-empty thing, let's look on the bright side. Frontier could do much of what the Newton OS could do. Their "soup" was a lot like our object database. Their programming language was a lot like ours. But our stuff built on the Mac OS, theirs didn't. We zigged where Apple zagged, and our paths met up.
I've gotten a bunch of mail on the Newton bit above and I want to clarify. I've always believed a small form factor Mac OS machine would be great. Newton was in the way. Now, many years later, technology has moved forward and a hand-held Mac OS machine makes even more sense. If they want Newton-like functionality, we have a lot of it already built in Frontier.
