Palm’s Linux-Based Platform

Palm announced at their Investor Day that they’re developing a new version of PalmOS based on the Linux kernel which should be ready later this year. The new OS is not tied to Access’ (former PalmSource) Linux PDA platform and Palm has no plans to license it to other manufacturers.

Palm’s goal is for the new OS to allow multitasking and simultaneous voice and data operation.
