    or they're just trying to grandfather the existing palm OS stuff out there?

    There are a variety of interesting interpretations :
    1) They are moving POS developers over windows mobile.
    2) they are seperating the Palm brand from POS.
    3) They are maing sure Palm's brand of POS is supported, vs the Access's brand in the future.

    If/when ALP comes out on millions of devices, with a lot of software written for it, it may be a problem knowing if a POS program will run on a Palm device. A designed for Palm logo woul sort that out.

    Interesting news.
    His talk about Garnet having a lot of legs in in and 2010 does not sound very promising at all for ALP, or even PalmLinux II.

    I agree with your analysis.
    This is interesting but not surprising at all.
    For Palm's "new OS" to allow for the running of existing Palm OS applications, one major issue could be technology infringements and/or the need for Palm to actually extend its licenses with Access to use the technology within Garnet/Cobalt...
