webOS goes Open Source
This week HP announced that their mobile operating system webOS will be contributed to the open source community. While HP assures us that they will be active in the development and support of webOS in the future, they’re now offering the operating system up to the “development power” of the open source community where they’re sure both applications and web services will be developed en masse for the next generation of mobile devices. HP assures developers that webOS offers a number of benefits backed up by an easy to work with set of standard web technologies – in short, here you go world, have fun!

"...to the open source community under an open source license"
Article didn;t say which one...
If it was BSD or Apache like then I could see it getting some traction in certain areas. The GPL is very tricky to work with in commercial products.
But that would probably be the only "edge" I could see since Android is already so entrenched and with SO much more support at this point...
