Here's another one:

I strongly disagree with your assessment of Linux on the desktop. Linux is
already ahead of its competition. It just needs better publicity, which in
turn will have more applications ported, along with new users.

True. However, Palm, just like Nokia and some others, are keen on GTK. Here's

I have been waiting for PIM for a while. Still too buggy though.
