Linux Linux has one, last, chance to become the No1 OS in a particular consumer-oriented market (not counting servers): the mobile phone market. The open nature and yes, the hype around Linux has made lots of mobile-oriented companies to consider using Linux for their next-generation cellphones. But there is a major problem on the way to success, a problem which is created not by Linux itself, but by the greed and close-mindness of these same companies that endorse Linux.

and the OS is open source based on Debian linux and uses GTK toolkit. It is pretty easy to port standard linux apps, like xterm, to it. It also can interoperate with blue tooth phones for internet connectivity (when WIFI is not available) and other blue-tooth devices, such as a keyboard and headset. Pretty good darn good compatibility.
