    Ever since HP mentioned that webOS would be installed on some of their computers, we've been wondering how that may work on the desktop environment. Take a look at this: https://www.leapmotion.com/ and imagine webOS.

    I'm a webOS freak, according to my mother.

    Looks like a great device... I said so over here as well when andersondiaz linked to it.

    Sure it could add touch to a PC or Laptop... I also think it would be a great add on to an Open webOS set -top box

    @ $80 (including shipping) I would get one if Dev's around here started pushing out uses for it.

    As I have posted before I bought an HPdm-4010us with AMD 450 processor in the fall of 2011on the idea that it would have webOS as listed in the specifications. Sure enough it did have a dual boot with what is called Quick Web on it. This was a Linux based operating system which allowed you quick accessnto the web and a couple of other things such as Skype and Twitter apps. But this form of webOS which was as I remember listed as version 3.09 was not the same as the Touchpad OS. The computer was built in June 2011 and in the Win7 part had a webOS icon which led you to the Touchpad web site. So before Leo kneecapped the project there definitely seems to have been a plan to join the computer and the tablet at the hip. Whether it was ever intended that the webOS apps would run on the machine is questionable. Incidentally the feature was not available on the Intel cpu machines where the quick web button only jumped you directly to the browser. Incidentally the OS for the quick webOS on my machine had an update in about Feb 2012 which I downloaded but it failed to install. After hours on the phone with HP I gave up and moved on to other things.

    Socketeq managed to run Android ICS on top of windows 7/8 kernel.

    And what does that have to do with webOS? We already have OWO on Ubuntu so that basically boils down to the same except you need to compile it for the time being.

    If it works for Android maybe it could work for open webOS. Windows crowd is much bigger than Linux.

    But we already have a bootable ISO for OWO which you can run in VirtualBox so that's basically the same.

    The main problem here for me is "virtual"
    we need to be able to install it natively or seamlessly (with droid/Unix/Linux drivers)
    My 2 cents

    Guys...this device is just the thing we should merge with the media setup box for TV idea.

    1. Media setup box with gesturing....

    If we get to put the media box as a USB (problem is how to get the device indentified at least 100% of all new LCDs) and this gesturing device connected via BT or WIFI -- it would be fantastic... viewers can gesture like 7 feet away from TV and manipulate apps on the TV.

    VirtualBox has a seamless mode. And yes, natively would be better but we have Ubuntu for that. But people didn't want that according to an above post so I'm not gonna bring that up again.

    @ vistaus
    My point was that the majority of consumers
    don't even know how to run/set up a virtual environment
    ( lack of skills , afraid to broke something,lazyness)

    Except for us geeky people don't care about Iso they just want something:
    - that you put on a Cd,Usb stick (Or already on it)
    - that has minimal option
    - that work out of the box (you don't have to configure)

    (thats why ubuntu is the most popular linux distro)

    When they made there early live cd
    you just had 2/3 steps:
    - select your boot option;
    - run it live(and if you liked it);
    - click "install"
    et voila!?!
