palmSource might not be the devils toy

Ok, I saw this the other day, and if I was a better blogger I would have been all over it the way I was when I found that palmOne was building a treo phone with microsoft mobile os for dell.In this article at the register we find out that palmSource may be looking to build its new OS on top of linux. There are several devices out on the market already running linux under the hood. I see this as a great opportunity for linux to spread its absorption. One of the key points that limit linux’s adoption in mainstream, is its lack of support for everyday things. Yes linux can sync most palms, but that would allow much tighter integration.

Maybe people will say, well it works on my handheld. It was a little different but I adjusted. Maybe its worth a shot on my desktop too. :)

A man can dream can’t he?
