Question:
Microsoft currently has a VB5 extension to allow programming of the WinCE handheld PCs, but not for the Palm PCs. Is Microsoft planning a version of WinCE VB for programming the Palm PC?

Answer:
Unfortunately, there isn’t enough RAM yet in the Palm-sized PCs to support VB development.

Also, notice that the “-sized” addition Microsoft has adopted in response to the lawsuits recently filed by 3Com claiming Microsoft’s use of “Palm PC” might confuse consumers, given 3Com’s US Robotics division’s “Palm Pilot” product.
