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!

OS X sells because it's a powerhouse for the creative industry. From musicians and producers through to photographers and graphic designers - OS X remains a popular choice.

True, but that's just because people in the so called "creative industry" are snobs, not IT specialists.
OS X isn't in any way better than Windows, Linux, BSD.


Where as WebOS is just a fancy front end to various social networking sites.


What would be Os X without all bells and whistles?

Some professionals use Photoshop, which isn't officially supported on Linux/BSD. So they use Windows or Mac for that.

I didn't say it was better. However it's not in any way worse either.

That said, OS X is way better than Linux and BSD for audio professional - and I can say that safely being a non-snobby full time Linux user and IT specialist who dabbles with music as a semi-professional hobby.

That doesn't even make sense.
Can Logic, Garage Band, Photoshop or Quark run on WebOS? No? well then OS X isn't just WebOS with some "bells and whistles".
