I'd like to ask if testing is done on installing another Linux based OS other than WebOS in our Palm Pre.

I've seen ports of Debian, Ubuntu and others in small devices like this one.

I think about this because it seems to me that the layer(s) of software between the kernel and the UI are too heavy and slow for the machine itself, and maybe an OS that had less of that could be faster, better, and more attractive to developers.

Thanks.
