When HP announced it was releasing webOS to open source on Friday afternoon, it surely didn’t kill it, but it left the operating system badly wounded with few prospects for success.
HP Leaves webOS Wounded, Not Even Dead

I think MS has it’s lackies out in force to try to put people off of webOS. “Nothing to see here, move along.”
Well they can go eat MShit. As long as HP is true to it’s word, there are plenty of us out here that will continue to use and develop the platform.

Existing Android manufacturers and carriers want a second OS option as they fear a market dominated by Google, WebOS is a perfect fit here…
It’s a mature system that’s already been proven on phones and tablets.
It’s based on the same Linux kernel as Android so no need to create two sets of drivers for every piece of hardware.
If properly marketed, WebOS could be very successful.
