Palm IIIxe : OS 4? buy? freeware?

I was given an old Palm IIIxe.  It has Palm OS 3.5.  The PalmOne site has the recent version of the Palm Desktop but suggests that I use Palm OS 4.  Is this freeware or do you know a place to download if freeware?  or a purchase link?

You may already have updated version of palm OS that the device can support. See this link:

The upgrade for palm OS version is free. I suspect if you can upgrade palm IIIxe to version 4 of palm OS.

Some more info:

Palm OS Upgrades
palmOne no longer offers regular upgrades to the Palm OS on most devices. Why? Most of the differences between versions of the Palm OS simply enable new hardware functionality that is only important if you're also buying a new handheld. For example, Palm OS 5 is not available on earlier devices because it depends on the 5-way navigation control, a hardware feature not present on earlier handhelds.

Patches & Updates
They do, however, offer patches and updates to improve the performance of many devices. Go to palmOne Support and select your product. Any available updates, patches and other utilities will be listed on the page for your device. (links discussed earlier)
