PalmSource to port Palm OS to Linux
Thread Description:

Slightly old news in the thread above, from a week ago but very significant for the mobile market long term.

Palm Source the maker of the Palm OS used in PDA's and Mobile phones is going Linux. They will be putting the Palm GUI over a Linux core. I expect this to come out in about a year and be a strong competitor to M$ Pocket PC. This is important so that we do not have M$ controlling the mobile OS and software market in the same way they control the desktop computing market. It will also give this new Palm OS the horsepower needed for more advanced mobile web apps - something the current version lacks.

Here is a related thread that explains things further: What does PalmSource Port to Linux mean?



The stock is taking a bit of a kickin'
