PalmSource, the manufacturer of the Palm OS, is undergoing yet another name change. Access, the Japanese mobile software maker and parent company of PalmSource, is apparently absorbing the company into its Access brand. While the Palm OS will still be called such, PalmSource will now be known as Access.
This divestment of the Palm-themed monicker is not a good omen for Palm fanboys, as many see the Palm OS, especially the upcoming Linux-based version, as salvation from the the Windows world. The next iteration of the operating system had better be kickass, or it may be the last.
