I think it's disrespectful to complain about how these companies don't have the soul when it's plain as hell to see that the soul is right there in front of you. Sure, these people have long moved on from Palm/HP, but by pitching a fit about the other OSes, you're essentially demeaning the work of a rather large number of the same people that spent significant parts of their professional lives creating the same webOS you love in the first place.
And posts like I quoted are, quite frankly, sad to hear come out of this community whenever someone bashes any one of these OSes and complains about "stealing" ideas. It's rather simple: These people who brought you webOS in the first place took those (unpatented) ideas with them to live on more commercially-viable platforms by convincing those companies they were worth adopting. Just be glad these ideas get to live on in the first place, because history is littered with great ideas that didn't get that chance.
Think hard about that next time you hear another platform adopt another great idea from webOS.
I'm sorry, but people around here just have to grow up and get over it already. This is how the real world works, and complaining about it, scheming about possible lawsuits HP should file like some do around here, and/or discussing whether another platform is "pure enough" for you is distracting from the goal of the Open webOS Project and furthering the platform you still have.
