    As we all know, Linux comes with Palm syncing software and there are lots of palm utilities written by other people in it. In my article on PalmPower I write about a few of these and how to sync up:

    Its probable that the serial cradle will suppport Linux based systems, but will the USB cradle work with the USB drivers in the 2.3x/2.4 kernel?

    I've posed the the question to Jeff Hawkins, but he hasn't gotten back to me yet. Any Handspring lurkers here able to answer the question?

    I wouldn't expect much info from Handspring. They are not supporting *ix in any way from what I have seen. Your best bet would probably be the dev pages for the various link projects. There was some discussion on this subject in earlier threads, but I believe that it was pretty topical with a few links to projects.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of Linux! This is just one of many reasons why I don't use Linux as my primary OS.

    Oh, I do have Linux on my Dell Workstation. But until the day they make Adobe Photoshop or Macromedia Dreamweaver for Linux...I ainta' gonna switcha!

    That's just my thought.

    I think the original poster wanted to know about how to
    get his Visor to work with Linux. I don't think he was
    asking for editorial judgements about Linux as an
    operating system. And as for that "lack of support"
    argument, I don't think there will be too many 95/NT
    or beige Mac users who will have USB support, either.

    As for whether the sync cradle will work with the
    upcoming USB support in Linux, I guess we will
    have to wait and see. I'm certain that if it doesn't work,
    someone will get it supported in short order.

    From what I have heard, the 2.4 kernel is supossed to have full support of USB. I am pretty sure that the development kernel has support for it right now, but I am not sure. Also, 2.4 should be out by November or December. I am awaiting that almost as much as my Visor Deluxe. I will have to admit, tough, non USB support has to be one of the biggest downfalls of the 2.2 kernel, along with parrallel processing, and large memory problems, but good ol' Linus will get these straightened out
