Up: GUI platforms
We do not address other GUI platforms in this first study. One of
the better known is the Palm GUI widely used with Palm
OS  powered handheld computers. No Palm handheld
computer uses an Intel StrongARM processor yet, which would make a
fair comparison difficult. Java and Visual Basic are also popular
for GUI development. However, their well-known performance
disadvantages compared to C/C++ are also translated into energy
disadvantages, although they may have advantages in other aspects.
Other GUI platforms/toolkits for embedded Linux are described in a
recent article .
