PalmOne ponders Microsoft, Linux options

Handheld-computer maker PalmOne is considering moves that would take it beyond the operating system that helped make the company a household name.

The Milpitas, Calif.-based firm has evaluated both Microsoft-based operating systems as well as at least one version of Linux as a potential alternative operating system to the Palm OS for its handheld devices, CNET News.com has learned.

This does not fair well to the spin off PalmSource, or for that matter the Mac Community. Sure there are tools for OS X to use Pocket PC based PDAs, but its not the same as using the Palm OS.
