HP to Contribute WebOS to Open Source

Better than just shooting it out back, but what’s the practical upside of this? What devices will it run on? WebOS contains some brilliant ideas and great design, but let’s face it: it still has catching up to do. Who’s going to be motivated to do that hard work now?

I hope I’m wrong, but I think this is just the difference between putting your dog down and letting it free on a distant mountain road.
