    So yeah...everytime i see POS as the short form for PalmOS, i always get a good snicker. And I mean, if you use the other meaning, anti PalmOS users would have a field day ^_^ Don't you think we need a new short form of PalmOS?

    How about PMOS?

    I would say PMS, but yeah I don't think that would fly either LOL

    Hahaha...yeah. I'm in the military, so 'POS' has always stood for "piece of sh*t" in my mind. Actually, when I started frequenting these forums, it took me a while to realize that people weren't just talking smack...
    Why are ringtones always such a big issue? Don't people realize that they're obnoxious!? And why the Nintendo 'Wii'? What th-!?

    I have the same feeling...and Hofo...it's kind of FUN calling it POS.

    I guess I might be naive, but what does that stand for?

    Yeah, it's become almost a tongue-in-cheek joke to me anytime I see that abbreviation. Because the POS is obviously so behind the times and unstable

    I agree but you gotta like how 'clean' the OS is.

    Yeah, I get a good snicker out of it too. But, like T2, I enjoy the double entendre. It has a sort of symbiotic quality. I mean, the thousands of third party apps, hundreds of forums and user groups and countless hours of frustrated enjoyment are all at least partly driven by its POS-ness. No?

    I have to look at the thread every time, I see POS exactly as Piece Of S### and for some odd reason my brain will refuse to see it as something else until I actually read the thread. I think go "Oh...they're talking about Palm OS, not the other" and go about life as usual.

    POS is a fitting name for the operating system, because that's exactly what it is...A PIECE OF S**T!!!!!
