Alot of people are misinterpreting (rightfully) my idea of "Ubuntu-esque WebOS". I guess what I really meant was since I have utter doubt any manufacturers will pick WebOS, I would ideally like to see it become an operating system that is so intensely supported by the open source community that people don't have the option to forget it. It's weird but it makes sense in my brain.
I think WebOS shouldn't be meant for native hardware and it's future, what I see anyway, is something that has a Ubuntu scent. Many people say ports can't work, but if they are done right and ideas flourish, I think WebOS can survive.
Think about this, a site where people can come to download WebOS for their PC, mobile phone, tablet, etc.. You have a page with patches/tweaks/kernels etc..
The neato people over at XDA always come up with awesome ROMs, why can't WebOS have that?
I also think if this open source works, it will attract ALOT of developers. STUPID I KNOW BUT it is ALOT easier to develop in Enyo than Android. Android is a pain to make any app for (atleast for me!) but Enyo makes things buttery smooth. Whether it's the big guy apps or just miscellaneous, I don't know, but either is nice to me.
