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.

ASUS? Maybe not the best candidate.

Who was the inventor of the Linux Netbook? Who killed that invention on the drop of a hat when "biggy buddy" MS called?

Who knows of an ODM that is in search of an OS and isn't dependent on MS's ad rebates?

Hmm... I am not so sure about that. I think they show time and time again that they are willing to experiment with crazy shit like Splashtop and the funny Xandros distro they put on their netbooks. Kudos for actually bringing those produces to the market before MS craps all over them!

I think ASUS is in a different position now, having released several fairly nice and successful Android tablets. I wonder at what point the phone/tablet division will be more worth to ASUS than their MS laptop division.

Hey, let me speculate will ya! ;-)
