    WebOS is becoming so copied by RIM, Apple, Android and now Microsoft that I'm not sure how unique it will be in the future at this pace.

    "Now, Microsoft is announcing a new shift that leverages the interest in HTML5 to deliver "web-connected and web-powered" apps (similar to HP's webOS platform acquired from Palm) that will run alongside legacy Windows apps on the forthcoming Windows 8. Microsoft says this approach "is designed and optimized for touch," although the company also says "it works equally well with a mouse and keyboard."

    Copied is such a harsh word.

    This looks like a fast, interesting, new windows. Besides it actually looks more like the playbook UI with that side ways swiping.

    copied is such a harsh word. In all honesty its more of innovating on good ideas. Think if no one ever built on another idea. Eventually innovation would run dry. Sometimes innovating is also building on something good to make it better. In some cases it works some it doesn't. I see this as great for everyone, except webos itself which is vastly loosing relevancy... Yes of course there's room for multiple players, but its so small on the radar that what we have seen so far is not going to be able to compete.

    Harsh word for a harsh world

    Well more harsh reality. If you don't bring your ideas to the market sooner and with a big bang, someone else will upstage you.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    The best product; if is not selled, is not the best...

    The best idea; if is not used, is not the best...

    When do you have some idea, do you have to implement and have to be the first to implement...

    Here in Brazil, we have a proverb: "-Isn't matter whether egg is good, the chicken always sing when put!"; in other words, if do you are doing something good, SHOW everyone that you did!


    Best Regards...

    I'm curious what kind of big bang M$ will bring with these HTML5 apps. Maybe they will be "Native HTML5 apps"? Maybe their approach will deliver "the most native HTML5 experience?" Maybe they'll take Silverlight, their attempt to beat Flash, and pass it off as "Native HTML5"? (lol)

    Any platform that wants to do HTML5 apps will have to beat Enyo now, and if you've seen Enyo, a competing framework will have to be pretty compelling to convince you to develop HTML5 apps on it instead of Enyo. M$ will have to bring more to the court than just "Native HTML5"/Silverlight.

    Platforms don't beat apps or development tools. Platforms have apps.

    Unfortunately if you don't have many apps then you probably don't have many developers and by logical extension not many customers. In that case you're either a company trying to ramp up or loosing out. With HP taken over it's arguably a reboot for Palm right now but by the end of this year we'll start to see if this going to work or not.
