Palm Experts: Music Creation

I like the expert series from what was PalmSource and is now ACCESS. This one has a focus on music creation but with a slight twist in that a lot of the applications refered to are ones that you might think of as supporting music creation rather than actually doing it. From that point of view it is quite a bit different from the stuff I normally cover. It makes for interesting reading though.

Palm’s new OS?

So Palm announce today that they have been working on their own new OS based on a linux kernel. This leaves me with lots of questions.

– When will palm bring out new hardware and will it have the new OS on it?
– How compatible will old apps be with the new OS?
– Will the new OS give new musical possibilities?
– Will a linux kernel mean it is easier to port existing linux music apps to the new palm OS?

I’m sure that more details will appear as the days go on, and I dare say that there will be lots of speculation on how this new OS will change the palm ecosystem.
