I have a Hitachi HPW-200EC hpc. It has a 100Mhz processor and a 16Mb of RAM, how come the aplications are slower and often no better than the games I played with on my 48K ZX Spectrum a hundred years ago. Possibly, like most MS software the applications are poorly written and far too feature heavy than they need be for such small devices as HPCs. Don't get me wrong, I love my HPC, but can't help thinking the hardware is capable of much more if a more basic OS but powerful OS was available.
Is there an alternative OS to CE for HPCs, and is it possible to get CE out of my HPC, and change to the other OS. Something as small and straightforward as Norton Commander would be fine. Is there a Linux version that could be used?
