PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless There are a lot of WebOS fans out there who regret this remarkable operating system got shelved by HP just as Android was swooping in to win the hearts and minds of developers. Is there still hope? WebOSNation reports they've got it running on Google hardware. Surely a little competition for Android isn't a bad thing?

Ported Linux to a device running Linux

Don't both of Android and WebOS run on the Linux kernel?
I hope things converge later on down the road and a common set of APIs are chosen.

If everything targeted Wayland then would it be trivial getting Ubuntu to run on a phone, or Android to run on a computer?

Isn't the reason there is so much work here because the vendors provide Android graphics drivers and not X or Wayland? It would be nice if everything spoke the same language.

Please excuse me if I don't know what the hell I'm talking about.
