    MeeGo's absolutely dead and neither Nokia nor Intel still support it; it was folded and what parts were left are being merged in with the new Tizen OS. Way different ballgame now.

    Clearly that means Intel's buying webOS!

    I agree, especially when taking under consideration that Tizen (Meego's successor) will also be based on HTML5 and web standards it makes sense for Intel buying webOS and combining the best of both.

    It doesn't make sense if the underlying OS architecture Tizen is based on is found to be incompatible with the way webOS is architected. Just because two operating systems have the same core principles in mind (HTML5/Standards-Based Development) it means nothing in terms of whether you can actually combine the two.

    It's more likely that Tizen could adopt some of the features that webOS excels at, but if Intel bought webOS I would place a firmer bet on it being a patent play so they could do just that without fear of litigation. I don't see a merging of the codebases being remotely probable in time for their first major release--if at all.

    That is, of course, assuming that Intel does buy webOS. And that's as speculative as anything.

    well, then Intel would have Enyo, also.

    We all thought the same thing about HP and that didn't turn out to well.

    True! At this stage in the game, I dont see the market responding any differently to an Intel-owned Palm. They would have to throw bags of $ and sweetheart deals to their OEMs. It is probable, though, since they've done it in the past and recently (with Ultrabooks), and are eager for a piece of that mobile pie - even if its on x86.

    I'm hoping that was meant to imply sarcasm.
