According to an article on Macworld News, Access Company Limited. will rename its Palm operating system in an announcement made Thursday. The operating system, long a favorite of PDA users, will be renamed “Garnet OS” in an effort to differentiate Access Company Limited, the firm that owns the rights to the Palm operating system, from Palm Inc., which holds the Palm trademark.
Access Corporation will also replace the “Palm Powered” insignia with “Access Powered” for devices based on the Garnet operating system.
In October of 2006, Access announced that it absorb PalmSource and rename it “Access”. PalmSource’s trademark was sold back to Palm Incorporated and Access has renamed the Palm OS to Garnet OS to help with the differentiation. Previous efforts to help with the distinction were seen in February of 2004 when PalmSource created different names for its operating systems, Palm OS 5 becoming Palm OS Garnet and Palm OS 6 becoming Palm OS Cobalt.
