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?

Recompiling is not rewriting but if you recompile it, can you recompile it for Linux in one dev enviroment?

Maybe an unusual upward spike in Linux support in to three/years...

Recompiling for Linux would mean either that the application is already based on a crossplatform toolkit/layer, or that the system API calls are portable, which isn't the case. So no, I don't foresee the spike in Linux support. Unless of course, Linux does (in an attempt to generate that spike) add support for the Windows API, I mean directly and not via Wine.
