Thanks Terrence!
I'll try to follow the instructions to setup the PhoneME, and I'll post it here later...

Yes, there was, but they were all paid... Couldn't find anything free...

Well, 'free' has several meanings and options.

Some JVMs and tools are 'free' for noncommercial use only, and quite
expensive ($ six figures and up) for a commercial license.

Others may not be 'free' in any version but might have lower cost of
entry for commercial use.

You didn't state your needs or business issues (and maybe it's none
of our business). In any case you probably want to consider all the
licensing options closely before you begin since some 'free to start
using it' products have ended up biting some people when they went to
ship commercial products and had a big shock...

Also some free products aren't open source and vice-versa. It gets complex.

Good luck on your project!

Bruce,
actually i do need something to use for commercial purpose... I'm developing a embedded software that will run on Windows CE. I'm using a small distro of Linux now, but my boss told me to try Windows CE too =)
In the end I'll keep Linux, it's cheaper and easier...
But thx for the answer...
