I had sort of been aware of the development of OPIE (Open Palmtop Integrated Environment), but I didn’t really know it was going to well. The Hack n Dev site is also moving ahead with a boot loader that can load Linux into a palm. Amazing.
So, what (if anything) does this mean for mobile music? I’m not sure as yet, but there’s got to be some ability to run more than just the basic PIM software on mobile linux. I’ve had a look at the apps list at the OPIE site, and there’s nothing really as yet, but maybe one day there will be something interesting to run?
