    I suspect the reason for the urge to install "Vista" on mobile platforms is to generate a new revenue stream for the Antivirus and Firewall vendors.

    That has been a very nice aspect to the PalmOS. . . . . .virus writers have basically ignored it.

    Plus - to be compatible, they will need to have the TREO go to a BLUE SCREEN to be Microsoft compatible...

    Now that is funny. We need Linux on the Treo, not Vista. Vista won't even see any of my desktops or laptops.

    Microsoft is having difficulty getting WIndows Vista on the desktop. Each year the deadline is pushed another year. Also the system requirements to run Vista are not attractive. So based on what we know what makes some people actually believe Microsoft can provide a port for mobile devices?
