Handspring 'might' use Linux in the future

Author: JT Smith

CNET: "Mountain View,
Calif.-based Handspring
said it doesn't see an
immediate need to use
other operating systems,
such as Linux or
Microsoft's Windows CE, a
smaller version of the
Windows software on
which about 80 percent of the world's personal computers operate.

That's because Handspring has been successful in adding functions to its handheld
computers with Palm's software, Dubinsky said. Handspring's Visor handhelds feature a slot to
add hardware attachments, turning them into mobile phones and even portable music players."
