Palm building their own [Linux] OS

Software developer David Beers has revealed inside information that Palm may indeed be building its own Linux OS.

It's confirmed: Palm is building their own OS

Meanwhile Palm, dominant in the US smartphone market, has been conspicuously quiet about the announcement of the ACCESS Linux Platform in February. Now we know why.

This is great news since Palm has been patching Garnet for their PDAs and Treo range all this while and better control of the OS is definitely a plus. Now Palm can continue building its Linux OS (compatible with Palm?) based devices without PalmSource.

Mace on ALP and future of Palm OS

Former VP of PalmSource Michael Mace shreds some light on the Access Linux Platform and the future of Palm OS.

My take in a nutshell: Access has deep pockets. ALP will likely appear on devices beyond 2008. Palm OS on ALP is generally for backward support of your favourite Palm apps: Expect developers to migrate to Linux platform. Future of ALP looks promising.

And the lively comments below the article are also very informative, do check them out.
