Other OS: PalmOne to give Treo 650 users 128MB SD cards
PalmOne PalmOne has pledged to provide every Treo 650 owner with a free 128MB memory card until it can fix a memory issue that has drawn a significant number of complaints from early adopters.

The problem also affects Tungsten T5 users, but PalmOne focused its attention on its top-of-the-line smart phone product, which contains only 32MB of RAM to the T5's 256MB. Both, is said, have ample memory for new users, but it accepted that anyone upgrading from a Treo 600 to the 650 might run into difficulty.

Other OS: What exactly can be done with an open source Java?
Java To be very honest, I think this question is now a bit outdated. Now that the JCP rules allow for an open source implementation of Java, it is clear that we will have an open source implementation, no matter what Sun thinks about it. So we should start asking the next question: "What will Sun (and all the rest of us) do to have a complete and compatible open source implementation?"

Other OS: What was BeOS?
BeOS BeOS was the brainchild of former Apple executive, Jean Loouis Gasse, who founded Be inc. in late 1990.  BeOS was originally intended to be a continuation of the Jaguar (an early RISC prototype) at Apple.  It was to run on the BeBox, a machine with four AT&T Hobbit processors.  The Hobbit was discontinued, and left Be in shambles.  The engineers scrambled to create a new platform for the OS to run on, and eventually they found the PowerPC.

Other OS: Java and open source
Java Recent debates about open sourcing Java overlook the unique character of programming languages: the open source code that is written in a language is often more important than the open source status of the language itself. In this article we'll move away from questions about the Java language, and instead look at how technology companies relate to the large amount of open source programming being done in Java.

Other OS: PalmOne president: We've considered Microsoft, Linux
PalmOne What is PalmOne up to these days? Plenty. For a start, the device maker is well in the black, having enjoyed five consecutive profitable quarters.

It has been buoyed by rising revenues from its Treo smart phone line, which recently doubled with the introduction of the Treo 650. Compared to the 600, the 650 features a higher-resolution display, a faster processor, and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. What's less certain, however, is its OS inclination.

Other OS: ReactOS - The Open Source Windows NT

Contributed by: Wesley Parish
:: Open Content

Despite the rapid growth of alternatives to Windows, there is a considerable number that have tried the alternatives, still prefer Windows but are frustrated with some of Microsoft's policies. There are many good concepts throughout the NT kernel, but there is a great deal of it that is flawed or leaves much to be desired. Unfortunately, without access to the source code, none of us can fix it. Enter ReactOS. This operating system is a young but rapidly growing open source clone of Windows NT. Wesley Parish contributed the following editorial to osOpinion/osViews, which analyses the benefits and drawbacks of the operating system.
