Comments on: DGOS Project Progressing, Coders Wanted

In case you haven't had enough legacy excitement for one week with the Aceeca Garnet PDA announcement, Palm OS programmer extraordinaire Dmitry Grinberg is now seeking team members to assist with his DGOS project.

DGOS is a rather admirable but gargantuan project by Mr. Grinberg to write a 100% Palm OS compatible, modernized OS from the ground up. I am pleased to see that his admirable efforts continue over a year since beginning the project. Details are still sketchy at this point, but Dmitry appears to be concentrating his development efforts by using the highest-powered, most recent Palm OS hardware for benchmark purposes, namely the LifeDrive and TX, alongside the older Tungsten E2. Additional details and updates are available at the DGOS blog.

He's somebody who you'd have to believe could do it.

BTW--Aaron. Since Garnet is pretty much gone how about publishing "HackME" for OS5? It would help alot as we cycle software on our various leftover Palms. Sometimes I'll use a TX for a year then was to use my m500.

It's interesting stuff like this that keeps me coming around PalmInfocenter years after shut down my Palm and moved my data out of PalmDesktop.

My Treo and Lifedrive yearn to boot a newer OS, and I would gladly invest hours in hacking away at them just for the nostalgia/hack value.

Other interesting thing would be a hypervisor on an android phone and option to boot "DGOS". Certainly there are some "zen of Palm" qualities that I miss to this day.

To the person above begging for a PalmOS 5 compatible version of HaCkMe, I would suggest you Google "MultiUserHack".
