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!

All of you are acting like WebOS is complete and that there are only going to be bug fixes and so forth.

HP is an ENGINEERING company. They, and with IBM, another great engineering firm, made some of the best hardware outside of Apple.

Not only do their have hardware engineers but they also have software engineers living under the same ideology of the hardware people.

FINALLY they have an OS to engineer. Look back at Windows 3.1 and where Windows has come since then. WebOS will change a lot too. I fully expect the WebOS OS to fork inside of HP over time. One version for small devices and limited use desktop/laptop computers. I expect a lot more robust version for medium to power users.

HP is not going to show all their cards. They would be fools to do so. At the same time, we can't or shouldn't believe that what you see, a 1.0 product, is going to be the "full" version. I just can't.
