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.

I think its all a matter of perception point.

Sun was spreading itself very thin in the end. When Oracle bought them they said no to a lot of stuff, most notably their open source efforts, which obviously pissed off people. The resulting hardware business is much more focused than Sun was near the end, which is the right thing to do if you want to make money.
