    I don't know if anyone else has started doing this, but I have. Most people have probably heard of the PSP portal called PspWxp, which is Windows XP for the PSP. Now I'm working on porting the latest version of it, which is vista, to the iPhone! I'm doing pretty well, except trying to find replacements for the Flash objects. Tell if if you have any ideas!

    Please join my project and help me out. This is my first one.

    I won't say it that blatant, but to tell the truth there is no point for Windows on an iPhone.

    First off, your view is an opinion with no real basis.

    Second, the point of windows is for interest/entertainment as the other emulators out there.
    With your point of view, GBA, PSX, NES, etc being emulated must've been one hell of a waste of time.

    It would be a nice challenge to port it to iPhone, but i agree. why put windows on an iPhone that is already perfect (well, almost).

    Anyway, you're going to encounter a problem i encountered with iPortal and its file size!
    The problem with safari is that its really slow to load webpages, even in local, so when you have a 14mb file to load, its going to be damn slow!
    I'm just warning you about it, but it will still be great!

    Good luck, and dont forget to PM if you need help!
