PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Heck yes. This is one fine way to toast the weekend, ain't it? HP has just announced it's going to release webOS under an open source license. While the company will cease making hardware for the platform for now, it will continue development on it together with the open source community. Hey Access, you listening? Update: More good news: HP's CEO just told The Verge that HP will be putting webOS on hardware after all - tablets!

G3 & Unity

Open and free WebOS will be more than a competition for Gnome and Unity on tablets. At this moment WebOS practically burns them to the ground. G3&U have some similarities, such as intense use of javascript, but I don't see how they could compete.

I still have hope to install Gnome 3 on a tablet some day, but free WebOS is a tempting choice.
