Hardware, Embedded Systems Leo Apotheker has big plans. HP (relatively) new CEO wants to transform the company, and is willing to break with almost everything his predecessor Mark Hurd set out. How about webOS on every computer shipped by HP?

So does HP plan to ditch Windows monopoly from their desktop/laptop machines? Currently it's pretty hard to get their computers without an OS, or with a free one at least.

It will probably be a splashtop like experience. Full Windows will still be there.

I doubt the value of this since, when do people perform a shutdown these days on Laptops? ... Takes seconds to come out of hibernate and almost instatly from sleep.
