Many years ago Windows systems were more popular. Microsoft created CHM then. It was compressed archive/file including HTML files (with CSS, Java Script, etc.) with additional TOC, indexes and similar things. I have used it for various purposes and even today it's possible to open and read many of these files. Example for it can be "The HTML Reference Library 4.0" (my conversion of original release prepared by Stephen Le Hunte).

Why (not) Samsung ? Why (not) Android ? Few comments from using Samsung Galaxy S... (2010, version 1.01)
8/16 GB disk space, Bluetooth, Wifi, camera (or more precise: two), headphones 3,5 mm jack, microphone and speakers, micro-USB, micro-SD card reader, FM radio with RDS, graphic accelerator, internal modem. Is it new computer model ?
No - it's Samsung Galaxy S. 4" touchscreen, proximity sensor, big battery, Android and some other make, that it's probably the best phone released during this year... Samsung already sold more than 5 millions of units and is planning to sell 10 millions to the end of 2010. Is it ideal ?

The more advanced phone, the shortest battery life. This is how we can describe devices created by Nokia and many other manufacturers. My question is: can't be created and produced for example 1600 mAh batteries (like in PDA) for them ?

Page moved from the gammu.org... Page was updated by me before June 2007 and later updated by other people on the gammu.org (I have marked it here by italic). This is rather in IRC or blog blog than article - you have been warned ;)

These are my random thoughts about MS Windows for x86... IMHO, we can speak about few time periods:
1992 - Windows 3.1 (Janus). Only protected mode, new: True Type fonts
1993 - Windows 3.11. APM
Summary: 16-bit time. Microsoft cooperated with IBM and there was OS/2 created during this time. First tries of making graphic subsystem (there was DirectX from it created). There were first network releases (Windows for WorkGroups).
