Company starts selling Linux for Palms

Empower Technologies, a start-up in Redmond, Wash., has released a version of the Linux operating system that will run on Palm IIIx, IIIxe and Vx handheld computers. Linux DA O/S runs on Motorola's Dragonball processor that powers current Palm products, Empower said Wednesday. A demonstration version of the software, along with an address book, a calendar, a calculator and some games, is available for download for the IIIx and IIIxe, the company said. A consumer version costs $40 and a professional version with programming tools costs $60, but the company is only accepting pre-orders at this point.
