Deleted Posts Watch: PalmOS is dead, no it isn't
An interesting one on Engadget today (no links, obviously). Ryan Block announced the death of the PalmOS:
We have it that Access officially declared what industry experts expected and Palm fanboys feared, [...] that a “logical end-of-life is expected for the Palm operating system.” [...] Basically, if there was ever any hope for PalmOS to survive this buyout, it’s now definitely thoroughly dashed.A while later:
Update: [...] Brighthand’s Ed Hardy has spoken to insiders at PalmSource who claim that while the next-gen PalmOS will be Linux-based, it will still run older apps and maintain the tradtional Palm look and feel [...]They've since withdrawn the whole article, which I guess is fair enough. But if ever there was an advert never to trust what you read on the gadget blogs (including this one), or the internet in general, this is it.
