Palm Licenses Palm OS Back From Access
Dec 7, 2006, 3:42 PM by (staff)
Palm today signed a deal to license the Palm OS Garnet (Palm OS 5) source code from Access. The Treo manufacturer paid $44 million to license the OS and its source code forever, including the right to make changes to the code. Palm will retain the rights to any changes it makes to the code, and was sure to point out it would do everything possible to guarantee current applications would be forward compatible with any changes. These changes could improve stability as well as add features and compatibility with new wireless technologies. Access Technologies purchased PalmSource and with it all rights to the Palm OS last year. Early this year, the company announced they would cease development of the Palm OS and focus on the ALP Linux OS, which will be able to run Palm applications.
