Can HP make WebOS fly again?

ImageNot only did HP keep their promise to make WebOS open source they are heavily supporting it by hiring 50 engineers! and paying handsomly too.
Palm did have a lot of success with it so it could have a chance.

A particular fondness for HP over the years from here... and from my son...
I'd rather be a free person who fears terrorists, than be a "safe" person who fears the government.

Yes this is a positive move. I bet it will be better than Win8 but it is hard to compete against Adroid and iOS these days.

I think they have enough killer patents to throw a wrench on the Apple's and MS's machinery.
