    Take your trash elsewhere. Your vitriolic comments are starting to annoy people. If you don't like it, don't buy it.

    Have you really USED Linux? There's this myth that Linux is perfect, and bug free, but that's just BS. Yeah, in some ways it's more stable, but the fact remains that you're using an OS that's been cobbled together by hundreds or thousands of people, and where there are people there are bugs.

    I just get a kick out of the notion that the designer of an operating system could somehow anticipate how every manner of third party software would interact with their software.

    Sometimes the people are the bugs. With pressure from a corporate stand point...developers don't have the time needed to even try to get things right. We still have the nerve to get upset when a device takes so long to release and IMO with the wait it should be somewhat stable, yet we end up becoming the beta testers. Does Palm have the capital to keep POS alive, because it would be better spent money than paying all of us for the fruits of our labor?

    Yes it was a stupid question, not to be taken literary..

    Yes, I have used Linux.. With certain builds it is far more stable than MS ever was.
    Why would it be so hard to use a stable build of Linux on a Portable?
