from CNET News.com [news.com.com]:
Palm is developing a Linux-based operating system for its handheld devices, according to company Chief Executive Ed Colligan.

Colligan announced Tuesday that the new operating system, which has been in development for a "number of years" and is now due to appear on Palm Treo handsets by the end of this year, will improve the stability of the company's smart phones while enabling greater functionality.

"We have been developing a set of system software that we will roll out before the end of the year that will allow us to take the Palm OS forward, and to modernize it and to upgrade that functionality and to bring the user community and developer community forward on top of a Linux kernel," Colligan said.
