Other 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 [20] 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 [29].
