PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless The announcement says: "The Beta release is comprised of 54 webOS components available as opensource. This brings over 450,000 lines of code released under the Apache 2.0 license, which is one of the most liberal and accepted in the open source community." Now it's time to get this stuff up and running on modern devices. I suggest the Galaxy SII. Not out of self-interest or anything, by the way.

I would love a WebOS device

I wish I was a little more technically inclined (and/or had the time to really invest to become more technically inclined) to be able to install webOS on a device. I don't know if it was because WebOS was my first smart phone OS or what, but between iOS and Android, I am one of those freaks that still feel WebOS was/is superior. The original WebOS hardware was subpar and the app market was dismal compared to the competition, but the OS itself has always made more sense to me than anything else. The cards, the multitasking, etc.

Anyway. Sorry for spamming the comments with unproductive things like this. I just miss WebOS. I hope this gets on a device.
