    IBM has left lot of good software to the open source comunity.
    GNU/Linux is already there, and helping to make business.
    Other vendors has given software and effors as well.

    Why can't HP do the same with webOS?

    This is a good move to keep it alive and kicking!

    It would not be good being that Mozilla doesn't make hardware or any entire OS for that matter, so we would be on the same boat we are in now, except Mozilla doesn't have the resources of HP to make something of webOS, so a smaller boat.

    Uhm, maybe you're right, but Firefox does not suffer that luck, and it's still one of the most used pieces of technology.

    Mozilla won't even want it --- because webos has the SLOWEST web browser technology in the whole mobile world. Slowest javascript ever. Take a webos web app and put it inside the iOS browser --- suddenly it works twice as fast.

    It would ruin Mozilla's name in the browser world.

    We're kinda missing the obvious here...namely Gecko vs Webkit.

    Mozilla is all ready working on a nOS and rumor had it at one point they were going to try to make their own Android for phones. I kind of doubt it, but if WebOS went open source it would be possible. And they could improve the browser, I mean, it's not like Mozilla makes web browsers or anything right?
