If webOS has a future it will be with Enyo 2. If you have no programming experience, and realising that Javascript (not Java), CSS &nd HTML are it's foundation, I would suggest that you try and get Ares 2 running. It is a graphical IDE, which would allow you to cobble together some applications on your and learn from the code.

Don't worry too much about hardware until things become a bit clearer.

agree with everything johncc said. Codecademy has some good JavaScript intro courses for free

Like you i've been studying some Javascript, HTML and CSS hpoing to one day make an app just for the fun of it. And since it has already been mentioned, Codecademy is a good place to start. The more you study it the more you will know what to study next. But actually coding and developing an app... wel that will take some time and patience for me at least. Good luck to you, whatever happens, enjoy your time doing it.

TP is still a very nice device, especially with LunaCE. Depends on the price, but I would still get it over an Android onky tablet if I needed to choose. I just love webOS. TP can run Android too, so when needed you can dualboot :-)

The problem re hardware is that Open webOS is not out of beta on any hardware. Certainly get a Touchpad or Pre 3 if you want to get feel for webOS. I have both and am more than happy with them.

The Touchpad still rocks, especially with LunaCE And Enyo 2 apps also run on the Touchpad and run with little to no modification on OpenWebOS so it's a good device to start with Enyo 2
