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?

WebOS will probably be HP's version of DeviceVM's Splashtop.

Not installed on the hard drive but in flash memory somewhere on the mobo.

I was thinking the same thing.

In my mind, it'd work well for an all-in-one PC, where you turn the screen on and WebOS is already loaded, with access to plenty of light-weight apps, and you just tap in icon for Windows to bring up the rest of the system.

I hope they don't try to turn it into a full desktop OS. That would ruin it for mobile users.
