So, last week I posted to the BREW developer boards about whether or not mere mortals can use it or not. Looks like Qualcomm is giving me the cold shoulder though, they have not responded. I wonder if the FSF or somebody could be bothered to purchase a cert on behalf of all free software developers. Qualcomm probably wouldn't allow it though :/

Other people not answering my calls include Amamax who are not sending my videocard replacement.. AFTER I shipped it to them; and some fucker on half.com who did not send me my electronics book and kept the money. What's with people lately?

Alternatives to BREW are not that interesting to me because BREW is what's on my phone ;)

Well, I mean alternative as in still being able to write code and get it running on the same phone. It's all java... The article covered both BREW and an alternative for the same phone.

Apparently, someone has written a JVM for BREW, so it can run J2ME apps. But it's not available yet. I definitely wouldn't mind targeting java.

I have a bit of information on it, and the answer is that it never got finished because brew is a piece of shit. YOU DO NOT WANT TO DEVELOP FOR BREW, even if you ARE a big corporation.

Heh

But see I /do/ want to develop on it because it's on my phone. If my phone had Embedded Visual Basic, I'd still want to use it because I hate owning computers that I haven't written something for!
