Hardware, Embedded Systems And, of course, just as I decide to leave the live blogging to play a game of Left 4 Dead 2, HP drops the big bombshell right at the end of their press event: webOS is coming to PCs!

Clarification from HP

I was reading an article on Information Week and it had this to say about webOS on PC's:

"McKinney, pressed for more details by a small, impromptu group of journalists, indicated that WebOS would run on top of Windows. But he also said there could be dedicated laptops, or clamshell-like devices similar to the ChromeOS notebooks that Google has prototyped and distributed for early testing. If the tablet is, essentially, a well heeled Web terminal with local resources for processing rich media, there's no reason to take the same approach as with larger form factors."

(emphasis mine)

So it seems that webOS could be nothing more than a shell for windows.
