eBookMan Seeks (Linux) Developers

Author: JT Smith

The press release sings praises of this handheld device, which is supposed to be not only a (copy-protected) eBook reader and multimedia player, but also a PDA, and talks of how thousands of developers are already writing software for it, and about its compatibility with Red Hat 6.1, and so on. (NewsForge editors, being kindly souls heavily imbued with the Solstice Holiday spirit, will not speculate about what percentage of those developers are working harder on cracking the device's copy protection scheme than on developing apps for the thing.)
