Fact is, nobody has answered our request in that post, quoted below:
"Thank you for your responses.
Our small project has become to be much more than it was supposed to be since a company has the ideea to use it in commercial ways.
First good news is that they are willing to use webOS instead of Android to be the "interface" with their clients in a new device that will be build.
Second, this company is willing to port webOS to arm-boards like Raspberry Pi and simmilar so that the integration with their appliance to be more fesable financial terms.
Since we are not prepared to handle such a task, is it possible to tell me who may be able/willing to start discussions with the company regarding this project? Me and my coleagues will be part only in the mechanical engineering part of the project so I will only pass the contact to the managers of that company for all the details."
Sorry for my bad wording – what I ment was that after posting an invitation to everybody to join this project, we got no answers. There wasn't any intention of invalidation.
From where your conclusion, Rod, that you don't see any evidence of serious commercial interest? Did you go further asking questions? Are you interested to be part of such a development? Then please reply to that request
If there is an opportunity, why not accept it?
Maybe, instead of this fatalism showed in manny posts in this forum, a positive attitude will bring a much deserved good faith to webOS. I guess that not only the company who hired us is or would be interested in using webOS instead of other OS's, and this because the decision is logical and makes sense if one wants to control an environment and offer a better user experience.
It takes time and effort (and maybe chance) to present a solution and eventually get someones interest but this means doing something.
