So reminiscent of Mac OS... :)

I find funny how many things from the Palm OS keep striking me as similar to Mac OS. Mac OS Classic also used Mentat STREAMs...

From the press release:

"Both Mentat TCP and Mentat Portable Streams (MPS) have been integrated into Palm OS Cobalt and will be available to all users as standard components of the operating system."

Does that mean they were integrated into the production release of Cobalt before it was handed over to licensees, or is this (like the OpenGL ES stuff) for a future version of Cobalt?

The Mentat TCP/IP implementation has been in Palm OS Cobalt for a while. I don't know why the press release was delayed until today -- maybe they wanted to time it with some other news or a key financial date.

So was there a "TCP/IP stack shootout" and this was the winner?
