Editorial Every few years we geeks have our own kind of popcorn show to watch: tech companies showing teeth to one another. This time around, it's Palm vs Apple. In all seriousness though, how ethical is the battle around iTunes?

Give us the BeOS source code, that's what they really should have done. But I digress.

Palm does not own the BeOS source code. Access/PalmSource does, which is NOT the same company as Palm. After 7 years, many of you ex-BeOS OSNews readers still can't make the distinction. Makes you wonder.

Palm buys Handspring.
Palm split in two. Palm/Palmsource.
Palmsource is renamed to ACCESS Systems Americas.

Is WebOS developed by Palm (the hardware company), or is some of it based on code from ACCESS (the independant software company)?

Or is Palm a software company again?

I don't know.
