Re: Palm-Linux OS?

No one outside of PalmSource has a clue what they have in mind. I doubt, though, that Linux OS underlying the handheld will translate to support for Linux on the desktop. Commercial companies make profits by catering to the largest markets. The Linux desktop market is infinitesimal. Since Palm abandoned Mac support, it seems to me to be highly unlikely Linux will win support.
