Applications, Ports, Drivers


The Einstein Platform allows NewtonOS to run on other operating systems. It currently runs on Mac OS X (ppc and x86), Zaurus (with OpenZaurus), Nokia Internet Tablets 770 and 800, PepperPad 3 and Windows (with Cygwin and X11).

Einstein Newton Emulator

The Einstein Newton Emulator runs on any Linux-based PDA with X11 support.

40Hz Software

A big bunch of software and applications for the Newton MessagePad is available at 40Hz.

IrDA Stack

The IrDA(TM) stack on Newton OS 2.1 devices is missing the TinyTP, IrCOMM and IrOBEX layer required by almost any IrDA capable peer device. Nitro adds these missing infrared layers via a Newton OS Communication Tool. Its usage is comparable to using the serial or IrDA communications tools.
