Palm Foleo with Linux threatens the Laptop

| The Palm Foleo is joining a list of MID (Mobile Internet Devices) like the
| Nokia N800 and Asus Eee that use a lightweight version of Linux but the main

| may be too difficult for the average user to handle, these highly integrated
| implementations of Linux have no problem being adopted by the masses. That
| could pose a problem for Microsoft in the long run if these devices ever get

| Currently, developers can build apps for the device by signing up with the

| X server for the machine yet, so porting graphical programs could be out the
| question. That said, with only 128MB RAM, you wouldn’t want to be running
| on this thing anyway... * *
