Who cares about the giant European GPS market?

I guess Palm does not want to sell a GPS unit to the lost and confused Europeans. Fortunately MS will ask them where they want to go today ;)

I think I would just wanna hide until somebody was actually ready to ship my product. This Plinux wait has the feeling of being a while.

Now that was just mean!

;-O

Given PalmSource's current situation, I can see why they're going to lie low for the next year. It's kinda hard to have a DevCon when you have no product to show other than the 3 year old KludgeOS 5™ that actually should have been decomissioned ages ago. Developers are understandably more than a little pi$$ed off with the Palm Companies these days. Things might have gotten ugly at a European DevCon now that it's become obvious to all that PalmSource is floundering and has no realistic gameplan.

Spelling Oktoberfest

I really don't want to be picky, but seeing "Ocktoberfest" in the header is hurting my eyes. It's Oktoberfest.
