Get Palm OS Running Under WebOS 2

Along with the new version of WebOS comes some other great news, somebody has found a hack to get Palm OS running under WebOS 2. If you’ve been following WebOS to any extent you know HP/Palm removed the Palm OS ROM from WebOS 2 which basically killed Classic (Classic is a Palm OS emulator application).

This was also disturbing news for me. WebOS doesn’t have a lot of applications currently available meaning there are some massive gaps in their software library. For example there isn’t an application for WebOS that allows you to edit Microsoft Office documents. To fill in these gaps I’ve been using the Palm OS emulator as there was software released for Palm OS to do practically anything.

I’ve not had time to try this hack but I will report back on it when I do. Either way it’s great news and greatly increases the functionality of WebOS.
