Users Petition PalmSource for Mac Support
Many Apple Macintosh computer users are still disappointed by PalmSource's decision to abandon native Mac OS support in future versions of the Palm Desktop. A new petition has been started to persuade PalmSource to reconsider.
Back in February PalmSource revealed they would no longer offer a native synchronization and desktop client for the Mac OS for the next generation Palm OS Cobalt operating system. PalmSource will only offer a windows version of the Palm Desktop for Palm OS Cobalt. They decided not to develop a native Mac OS X version of the desktop as they previously have. Third party developers have pledged to make a hotsync client for Cobalt and Mac OS X available.
PalmSource made the decision due to changes in the hotsync architecture and how the new PIM apps work. The new PIM apps have be re-architected to more closely resemble Microsoft Outlook fields and the internal database use a new SQL like schema to store records.
The recently launched Mac compatibility petition asks PalmSource to reconsider their position on Mac support.
