Folks should realise that open sourcing something like webOS is not something that can be deployed overnight.—

I don’t know exactly what this will mean or how long it will take for us in the real world to see any effects.
But I hope for a webOS that can be installed onto an Android tablet, replacing Android.
Or a company like Samsung taking the existing hardware of the Galaxy Tab 7 Plus, or 7.7, or 8.9 and offering a webOS version.
It’s time for everyone to recall that the original PalmOS became the ACCESS Linux Platform and has since gone nowhere.
I hope webOS will go somewhere.
