    That's good news. Good news indeed. Now if HP (or anybody else) uses webOS on a future hardware platform, things could turn out very well indeed for the webOS user community. A lot depends on how HP licenses the OS. If it's GPL or GLPL it might slow adoption the same way these licenses slowed initial adoption of Linux but if it's more like creative commons, things in the webOS world could heat up fast.

    Absolutely crazy that it took this long to come to this decision. But it has a chance to be absolutely incredible news.
