"ALP was developed by PalmSource, a software company that split
from Palm in 2003 and was subsequently acquired by ACCESS in 2005.
ALP's PalmSource legacy makes it sort of a spiritual successor to
the original PalmOS, but it's important to note that ACCESS is not
related to Palm and that ALP is not related in any way to the
Linux-based platform that Palm is developing today.
"We took a close look at ALP last year with a detailed hands-on
overview. ALP leverages components of the GNOME mobile and embedded
stack, which means that third-party developers can use GTK+ to
build applications that will run on the platform. It also includes
a Java runtime, a Garnet emulator that enables support for legacy
Palm applications, and a Web widget runtime that allows developers
announced plans to release a new version that would supply a more
modern user experience. The new version was unveiled this week at
the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona."
