Oracle and SUN Now that Hewlett-Packard appears to be a little tipsy, not really knowing where it is and what it's doing, Reuters is reporting that the company is working on selling its webOS operating system. HP acquired webOS as part of its purchase of Palm, made a big fuss about the whole thing, and then let it fizzle out. The company rumoured buy webOS? Oracle.

Forget Intel. They'd dump WebOS on the first company coming their way just like with Moblin. And never hear about it for the next 5 years.

Software doesn't fit in Intel's corporate culture. In fact, they're not very good at anything else than CPUs.

It's a company that bought several video card companies (Chips and Technologies and a few others IIRC) and yet, in 2011, still can't build decent low end GPUs. Intel poured billions into the Larrabee project and it was a complete disaster.
