| Thatâs sort-of why Windows Mobile never 
| really left the nerd market and Palm had 
| great early success. Winmo required 
| computer skills with layers and layers of 
| OS until just recently when companies 
| started to skin the GUI with a more 
| friendly interface. Palm OS on the other 
| hand was simple , but yet robust enough for 
| most mobile computing tasks ten years ago.

| conflict with Appleâs patent that everyone
| has been ranting (and working around) for
| the last few years. From what I hear the
| future 0.9.0 release wonât be hampered by
| it, but how does Compiz fare with patents?
| Who made Compiz, and whoâs working on it
| today?

| Samba developer and Australian open source
| legend Andrew Tridgell has had plenty of
| experience dealing with interesting legal
| issues while trying to get Linux servers
| communicating with Windows, but he now sees
| the exploitation of patents as the biggest
| threat to the open source movement.
