"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 corporation within the consumer electronics industry to replace the Palm O/S, providing Palm handheld users and other PDA manufacturers with an alternative O/S.

Linux DA O/S replaces the Palm O/S within the actual handheld device but still remains fully compatible with Palm's hardware, proving that Linux DA O/S is a flexible and powerful operating system. Using the open source Linux kernel, Empower Technologies has designed Linux DA O/S to be the first Linux compatible O/S scaled down for the Motorola Dragonball CPU platform used by Palm handhelds."
