I liked it, though not as much as webOS, and it was unstable as heck (like CM9). However, after complaining about it in the right forum (on XDA−Developers, not webOS Nation) I found out that all I had to do was update the bootloader and flash utility and now it is stable enough for everyday use. Some useful Android apps received tablet versions (Flipboard, Spotify, and Tapatalk) making the experience using them a lot better and I finally found a decent Android keyboard with a numbers row (A.I. Type).
I still prefer webOS to Android for ease of use and if all was equal, I would still use webOS. However all is not equal. We seemed to have been all but abandoned by major app developers and HP. The company that was supposed to bring us Android apps on webOS turned out to be purveyors of vaporware. Open webOS is in its infancy but, since it does not support CDMA devices, it is rather useless on Sprint and Verizon phones. There have been no updates to the web browser to support HTLM5 standards even though it is prevalent today.
Android is not perfect by a long shot. I understand why some people prefer iOS or Windows 8 over it. However, at least it is supported by companies that actually give a damn.
