Article: Connect Your IPAQ to Linux

by Dan Ayala


Choose Not To Conform

Palm pilots and pdas are constantly growing in the ways that people use them in their everyday lives. Having a pocket pc is becoming the standard rather than the exception. However, many people have a desire to connect their ipaq with Linux, because it is free, and because they have an objection to paying for expensive, proprietary software. As an alternative to Microsoft and Mac, Linux is a great option.

Some pocket pcs come with the Linux software already embedded. For instance, HP and Compaq palm pilots are two that usually come with Linux software already as part of the standard package. Dealers of pocket pcs are anxious to offer plenty of choices that will personalize their pda to the average consumer.

One of the best things about Linux is that it is considered very safe and extremely stable. A Linux connection can be found online very easily. Many reputable sites offer Linux connections for your handheld that can be quickly downloaded. Linux is also simple to learn, so people who are worried about being able to use it should be able to master it in no time at all.

If you connect ipaq Linux, you can assert your individuality and choose not to conform to the normal, expensive software options that others go with. Using Linux is just one way to assert your personality, and to let the expensive software market know that you are not one to go along with the crowd and others are joining with you every day.
