Thanks for the clarification, Jeffrey. This makes perfect sense.
I hope that, if true, Apple premium costs do not apply to Palm devices. I
also hope that lock-ins are not part of the deal and that existing Linux
conduits are never broken. It is about time Palm themeselves catered for
Linux, probably in the form of a compilable version of Palm Desktop. I am
losing my patience, not for that reason alone.
