I really appreciate that some of you, developpers, like to invent PD 
devs for such mobile devices. Great developpements. Big fun. But you 
spend a lot of time for those games for rich, for an elite. In many 
countries, just the price of an Iphone and accessories is enough to 
feed one starving family FOR A YEAR !
[For the first time ever, this year, this evening, about 850 million 
humans will go to bed hungry, like yesterday, and may be tomorrow].
When some of our best PD brains are working (with FLOSS) for few 
riches only, it is a mystery for me.

BUT some PD-developpements for handheld devices have been done to run 
PD on small CPUs: has someone succeeded in installing PD on an OLPC 
XO ? I have no competency to do it, but if some people in france want 
to try, we have some XO available in the hackerspace tmp/lab in 
Vitry. Contact OLPC-france.
