PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Palm is finally getting ready to land its users onto a modern Palm-built OS. Ed Colligan, in his Investor Day keynote today, announced that Palm will be launching a homegrown Linux-based OS by the end of the year, with Opera for a browser and the recently acquired Chattermail for messaging.

I wouldn't call what was said FUD. I've had various levels of success with different versions of the PalmOS starting with my Handspring Visor. I've also seen some friends completely happy with Palm while others run for Windows Mobile.

What some consumers do, however, is blame the OS when sometimes it's faulty hardware. My Treo650 was horrible when I first got it. It crashed constantly. It was recently replaced by insurance when it broke and my replacement works perfectly.

So, while your experience might be a pleasant one it isn't always the case for every end-user.
