    for all practical purposes 6.1 is just 5.0 that has WiFi and SD slot built in. To average user the OS behaves exactly the same way, it has the same look and feel, etc etc...

    6.1 is a guarantee road kill.

    I'm already drooling in anticipation. Anybody else with me here?

    all those are supposed to be out last January, not next January.
    The competitor are putting the next biggest thing to compete against PSP and nintendo while Palm is still making a big deal about WiFi and multitasking.

    That is rediculous, Cobalt is a complete redesigned multithreaded OS that will still run palm 68K apps. It was done to provide an excellant OS for hand held ARM devices into the future - and PalmSource is delivering it.

    I think that you must be just a stock hustler - shorting PSRC - you have no idea what you are saying but it is all negative.

    Nonsense.

    6.1 is what 6.0 was SUPPOSED to be but PalmSource released 6.0 WAY too soon and obviously because they had promised it to their shareholders for 2003. So they released a broken and crippled OS to meet their deadline and have now announced (released? I'm not sure!) the same thing all over again and added a coat of paint to make it look better.

    don't need to be a stock hustler to see the obvious shortcoming of POS 6.0. It may be a complete redesign, but if it quack like a duck, walks like a duck and looks like a duck. It's a duck.

    6.0 behaves like 5.0, looks like 5.0 and performs as slow as 5.0. It's just spiffier 5.0 plus all the incompatibilities. (that famous 20% incompatibilities?)

    Cobalt will handle multi-tasking, whereas Garnet will not. This is the deal-killer for me with Garnet. I don't want to lose my internet connection when the phone rings, and I want to be able to put a phone call on hold, check something on the internet, and come back to the caller.
    And suskind, hurling gratuitous insults at palm's OS is just showing your ignorance and immaturity. Most people are willing to listen to an informed critic, if they can detect any sign of intelligence behind the criticism. You just come off as a smart aleck, or "troll".

    I tend to agree with you. Unfortunately this is common practice in the software world for launching re-architectured products.

    I consulted with Palm before the split a few years back.

The government did not mandate a split...in fact the government wasn't involved. It was a smart management decision to finally let each company seek its own level. PalmOne is a licensee of the PalmSource OS's, just like Sony and the others. If Palm wants to transition to Symbian or PPC (though it would be a bad idea) they could, presuming no contractual obligations to remain PalmSource Only.

    See the exclamation point in the quote there? Right next to the equals sign?
    Know what it means?
    Clearly not.

    So get over consulting your Palm.

    The symbology != meaning "not equal" is from the domain of computer programming languages. It is not a common English idiom.

    I appreciate the clarification...but you need to get over yourself and have a bit of courtesy. Not everyone knows all the symbols...

    Thanks!
