So now that the deal is done between HP and Palm, HP can pretty much do whatever they like. I am curious how the community would feel about HP changing webOS's name to something that would ring better with people.
IMO, I love what webOS stands for, but I think "web" of webOS brings a bad stigma along with it. First, in the minds of misinformed developers, web means you can't do native programming. Second, in the minds of everyday people, web means internet. It's all about the apps these days. People are thinking about a internet page, when the hear web, not a cool apps. I think webOS has a very big mind share problem. Something needs to be done. This is just one idea.
I am not very creative, but some name ideas :
