Do you really think they're relying on security-by-obscurity? I hope not, because that wouldn't say much for the quality of their code.

Its getting there tho. I mean how many years after palm released devices was it before there was linux conduits made by reverse engineering, as palm never made them.
Sorry, I don't really care about RIM (as a company) or about what Palm has done. I just want the device - I payed for - to work with my Linux boxen. At present, the Pearl seems a victim of the "Vindows uber alles" mindset. Stupid, stupid, stupid!
