The actual _ability_ to upgrade, and the highest version you can upgrade
to, may be an issue, though. :^/

Pete - what kind of Palm device do you have?  If I recall, it wasn't
even a Palm III, was it?  (Maybe I'm confusing you with another friend I
know who's had a Palm for a while.)

FYI, there's a Palm Users Group (PUG) in Sacramento.
I don't know much about them (although I met someone from there at
the Sharp Zaurus Symposium, actually!), but I'm sure a quick web search
will find them, and they probably have a support mailing-list not unlike

I'm fairly certain this is not true. :^/

Nope... licensing deals. :)  Handspring and IBM pay/paid Palm for
the ability to include PalmOS on their devices.
