    M$ Pocket PC Monopoly Competition?

    Although the low-power handhelds (Palms/Handsprings, mainly) seem to have escaped the Micr0$hit monopoly (temporarily, at least), we all know M$ jumped on the Pocket PCs (iPaqs, Jornadas, Casios, Toshibas, etc.).

    This may be old news to some, but it appears that Sharp's new pocket pc (the one with a slide-out keyboard built into it) ships with pocket Linux! I hope Linux will triumph this time!

    This is especially likely because it seems that the pocket Linux will run the M$ Pocket Office apps! I even managed to persuade a relative, who manages a university network, to buy these Sharps instead of iPaqs

    On an offhand note, what the hell is the point of Linux for PlayStation 2?

    psyk0 I think the PS/2 Linux thing is a good idea. If I had a kid and was stuck on my Windows ways, I wouldn't want no damn linux **** on my PC. I would say play with your video games kid!!!!!

    I think its a great idea and will help spread the idea further!

    Ive heard rumors about the PSX/2 ultimate it's supposed to come with a wireless keybord and trackball it's supposed to have a 30 gig hd like rdram....basically a fair computer......it's supposed to have it's own os based on the AIX kernel. That will pretty cool because it will bring out a hole new market of games that will run on linux or any *nix flavor. It will also bring out *nix back into homes.
