I'm talking about ARM devices.
Will it possible doing without recompiling?

Thanks

We can already run ARM linux applications under 2.x/3.x- see Xecutah in Preware.

If you're trying to run an x86 binary, probably not. Instruction set conversion would probably be inefficient, and if you have the source, why not recompile it anyway? I believe some common apps you can get in ARM from Debian repositories.

Optware has a great many linux apps available, not all, but a significant subset.

As a Linux user, I'm also interested in the converse: can we run Enyo/webOS apps on Linux?

Enyo, most likely. Enyo 1 apps require WebKit, and all dependencies on Palm services removed before they will work. Enyo 2 should work out of the box, as long as the framework is distributed with the app and there's no special platform-dependent things going on.
