No PC software to be expected in the near futur from Philips. The buttons and position are fixed (but in a clever way). The gaphic layout is fixed too, which is regretable, not because it's ugly, it isn't, but because it is in grey shade and does not take advantage of the color screen. More choice (templates) should be given to the user.

As for the software, I heard that the source code was avalaible, so I guess maybe a very gifted, very charitable computer wizkid could come up with something of his own (like that Tonto project for the pronto). Someone on this forum (Magick) already tried to gather information about it (see "it runs linux" thread), but no information has appeared on his website for a long time, so I guess he left this project.

Hope this helps.
