    If that is the case, we'll see the next Treo with the Linux-based Palm OS early next year.

    that was Palm SOURCE -- the struggling POS company. They made that announcement.

    The debate really is what that implies for future Treos.

    Palm(one) did hint towards a PPC version of the treo in the past so it isn't impossible..
    However I'd say a 730 on PPC is very improbable..

    palm is in the business of selling devices, how would it hurt them to sell devices to users who dont want a palm but want a MS device.

    would it hurt palmsource? only if they whine and dont come through with their promises for their OS.

    Microsoft gave up its entire sports games lineup in order to get EA to develop all of its games on Xbox and XBL. If MS really want to kill PalmOS that bad, they should bite the bullet and accomadate PalmOne.

    It's not like Samsung has another OS to turn to anyway.

    (Just to clarify, no I don't want a WM05 Treo. But I can see this benefits MS more than it benefits PalmOne.)

    Because MS doesn't need to buy time from Wall Street by showing people still care about their OS. Palmsource, OTOH.

    Maybe I am wrong but didn't Palm and PalmSource divorce? Seems if the Palm OS were important to Palm then the two would not have gone their seperate ways with only a guarantee of buying a certain amount of PalmSource product over a specific period of time. Seems this opens Palm up to negotiate with whatever OS it deems is good for its business and having more then one OS for their phones may allow them to lock up the smartphone market and sell more of the Palm design (ie: Treo form factor). Seems pretty simple to me that if they want to be a hardware company and not an OS that they would go after all angles. Maybe this is the reason for the parting of the ways with they and PalmSource...And doesn't Palm have new leadership who may want to shake things up a bit?

    They divorced because the two companies apart are (presumably) worth more than the two companies put together. It really has nothing to do with being beneficial to either company.

    I want a Windows Treo. After owning a Palm V, then a IPAQ 2200, and now a Treo....I overwhelmingly love the Windows PPC much better.

    Don't get me wrong, I love the Treo....but I would prefer a Windows version. Just my 2 cents....I'm sure everyone has their own preference. Some like skinny woman...some like 'em fat....it's your own choice!!

    we shall see, everytime this subject comes up there are plenty in these forums who think they know all the inside scoop, I wish they would reveal their sources if they are that good...

    That's the rumor I've read too...next gen Treo early 2006 by March at latest...

    Oh boy... Talk about getting the story mixed up..

    First of all there are 2 companies here. PalmSource is the one that announced it is putting all its resources on porting linux kernal on next ver of palmos. Palm is the company that makes the Treo and lisences the OS from PalmSource. There has been absolutely NO info regarding what OS they will use on the next gen Treo. It could be yet another iteration of so called "frankengarnet" or Coblat or whatever. My guess would probably be Frankengarnet at this point since it doesn't appear Palm has any desire to use cobalt now or ever unfortunately...
