The decline, further decline and collapse of webOS - wireless, webOS, tablets, software, smartphones, Palm, operating systems, networking, Microsoft, hardware systems, Google, css, consumer electronics, Apple - Software - Techworld
WebOS wasn't really a bad operating system; it just never really had a purpose.
Think of it like this: Microsoft's Windows has ubiquity, Apple's iOS has ease of use and brilliant integration with other Apple products, Google's Android is open-source and free to use, and Research in Motion's BlackBerry OS comes loaded with enterprise features. HP's webOS, on the other hand, never really had a compelling hook and only served as the last gasp of Palm, the company that was formerly famous for its pioneering Palm Pilot devices.
