    I know it was originally a joke, but it was a very widespread joke at the time.

    I reckon that if gram.com really did put it on a toaster first, it would make the news all over the world, and put gram and webOS back on the map.

    They'd sell millions with a cool (to touch) touchscreen to choose what type of bread and what color would you like it to be, then look at FB updates, watch a YT clip while your toast cooks, read headlines or monitor your power usage.

    Shaped like a river stone of course.

    Lol.. yeah... would be fun... but I think that would really start... unless it is a very big toaster, I wouldn't crouch in front of my toaster to watch anything.

    and have the screen show an animation of how dark the toast is getting which you can swipe up to "pop" like flicking away a card.

    Cooling fans for the CPU/GPU battling against the heating coils for the toasting slots...

    Doubles as a science lesson for the kids. Warm air vs cool air creating mini thunderstorms and tornadoes right there on your kitchen counter.

    The insulation used could be flammable... Best would be tablet controlled toaster. Or a webOS fridge. I'm getting deja vu...

    Of course that would be more sensible, but not as newsworthy. Just about anything can be controlled by a tablet/computer and fridges have been done.

    However, in the history of the field of human endeavour ONLY webOS has been proposed to be put on a toaster.

    if it had an apple or toastmaster logo only most likely.
    people will say it's laggy, resulting in burnt toast because it didn't eject the toast in time.

    Er...

    Wasn't this done?

    The webOS Toaster is real | webOS Nation

    On a serious note, I saw the Jolla people were trying to install Sailfish onto anything they could get hold of (well, serious computing platforms at least!).

    Are gram's resources more limited?

    And the team at HP tested webOS on the iPad1 while they were getting the Touchpad market-ready.

    If there's a compiler for some particular processor architecture, the Linux kernel can be compiled to run on it. Then if you can hook up any old hardware keyboard and have a primitive display output (or SSH or TTY in), you can say that it's running and usable. Hardware accelerated graphics and full color high-res display come later with much more work.

    Well, wasn't it Debian => Maemo => Meego => Jolla. It's built on a serious linux distro that's been around for a long time and loading it onto yet another device doesn't impress me. We can run webOS on many things if we just forget about Luna, but Luna is where all of the non-PDK apps run and the UI is. LunaSysMgr is the face of webOS

    Yes.. it's not so much the issue to get linux running, but to give LunaSysMgr a warm and healthy environment where it likes to do it's magic.

    The HP dv series would be a better heating choice though.

    wasnt the rumour that they ran enyo apps on the ipad, and not actually webOS, which is quite different, or was there a different story i missed? deffo soudsn weird as the "touchpad" came bundled with android originally before it went webOS native.
