PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless If you're a Palm fan, you might want to look away - or not. Chris Ziegler has written a fantastic article on the short rise and eventual demise of webOS, and with it, Palm. I'm generally not a fan of companies, but I have my exceptions - and Palm is one of them. Correction - Palm was one of them.

Prima was the UI/app framework on top of the Linux kernel, written in Java. Basically, it was analogous to Android's Dalvik framwork.

WebOS 1.x shipped with Prima on the device, but not accessible to normal application.

WebOS 2.x removed all traces of Prima. In theory, 2.x should have been smaller in size, so an upgrade from 1.x to 2.x should have given you a good chunk of extra storage.

WebOS 3.x shipped with Enyo, an upgraded UI/application framework.
