Oracle and SUN Now that Hewlett-Packard appears to be a little tipsy, not really knowing where it is and what it's doing, Reuters is reporting that the company is working on selling its webOS operating system. HP acquired webOS as part of its purchase of Palm, made a big fuss about the whole thing, and then let it fizzle out. The company rumoured buy webOS? Oracle.

And Oracle might make it available to the open-source community? That could be good.

Oracle making it available to the open source community?! LOL! The ONLY thing Oracle might do with it is sue (Android?) for supposed patent infringement.

Palm was a mature company with many legitimate patents. WebOS, buy itself, was an OS created by Palm and released in 2009. I doubt highly that Oracle would want anything to do with one and not the other.
