Remember the iPAQ, the PDA released by Compaq back in 2000? Well, that little device was cool, but not everyone was happy with the OS it was running. Enter Familiar Linux. The first version (0.1... Familiar never actually hit 1.0, despite a seven-year run ending with version 0.8.4 in 2007) was released in May of 2000, and commonly ran the GNOME Palmtop Environment.
