There is massive interest in Linux on next-generation handhelds like (Compaq Computer's) iPaq and other high-performance handheld devices," said one source. "SuSE is planning to use this as its entry point into the embedded market."The early Linux kernel 2.4.0 final mirrors can be found at Apu's Hardware and the Linux Kernel Archives. There is also a Linux kernel 2.5 wish list already. On a somewhat related note, 2001 International CES begins tomorrow.
Linux has become a successful high-end operating system in recent years, but it has yet to make a major impact on the desktop market. And it has barely started in handhelds.
