Well the downloadable LinuxDA thing is just a demo, missing several
useful things such as handwriting recognition. Also, the download
is a Windows installer containing a Word doc for documentation: Not
very Linux friendly. I've been pestering them to release the source
a few times but I've got no response.
And I remember seeing talk of a Linux-on-Palm os that would run
existing PalmOS apps. That sounds like a useful feature to have
and as far as I can tell LinuxDa doesn't do it.
