"Empower Technologies Inc. announces the release of the
world's first major operating system (O/S) upgrade for Palm IIIx
and IIIxe handhelds. Empower Technologies' embedded Linux DA O/S DB
v1.0 is faster, more powerful, and more robust than the original
Palm O/S. Empower Technologies becomes the first and only

scaled down for the Motorola Dragonball CPU platform used by Palm
