Access, the current owner of the PalmOS operating system for mobile devices, announced thursday that it was renaming the latest version, PalmOS 6, to "GarnetOS." In addition, the company is going to market the OS and devices that uses it under the new slogan "Access Powered," replacing the former "Palm Powered" branding.

Will the name change rescue Garnet from the walking dead? It isn't clear that it will. "Palm" was the brand name that most people recognized, with only enthusiasts knowing about the "Garnet" name. And it isn't clear that Access is interested in promoting Garnet, other than renaming it.

Cut and Paste Source

To me Garnet sounds more like a breed of duck than an operating system.

No! They can't do this! Palm Powered sounds a lot better than Access Powered. I'm pretty sure not a lot of people knows that Access owns PalmOS and therefore will get confused by the name.

palm should seriously re-acquire palmOS from access because access will most likely ruin palmos
