As for the above mentioned item that webOS is now open source, allow me to clairify that. While HP has agreed to open source the OS, there are still issues to be handled. Only part of webOS is open source, several of the drivers and subsystems are closed source and some type of licensing agreement will have to be developed. There has been no anouncement by HP, as of yet, as to when this will come about as there are several possible lincensing possibilities (GPL2, APACHE, ect..). Until this is agreed upon, and some closed source code can be replaced by open source equivilents, this will remain out of reach for us. The ENYO framework for webOS development has been placed out there as open source as it was developed by HP and Palm. We are still waiting for the remainder of the source code.
Hope this clairifies the issues involved.
