    Here's a nice article out of Forbes that may help counter some of the anxieties people have been feeling.

    WebOS: Will It Make Hewlett-Packard A Winner In High Mobility?

    One nice point in the article is Roger Kay pointing out the following:
    Another secret weapon in HP’s arsenal is Richard Kerris, who joined HP just a couple of months ago. Kerris — formerly of Apple (where he set up developer networks during Apple’s rise to prominence) and George Lucas’s Industrial Light & Magic (where he was CTO) — was brought in to get the developers on board. Describing the atmosphere at HP’s Palm division, he said it “feels like Apple around 1999,” with all the excitement of knowing you have a great product and a shot at a big win in the marketplace. Kerris described how as soon as he took the job, developers he has known since Apple days jammed his inbox, looking to get involved. “They are really looking for an alternative,” he said.

    Before the coming out party for Hewlett-Packard’s (HP’s) new CEO, Léo Apotheker, last week in San Francisco, I would have put my money on Microsoft to make number-three vendor in the high mobility space. Now, it seems clear that HP — with its webOS — is the more likely winner.
    He's pretty confident that webOS will be the third mobile OS, beating out Microsoft and RIM. I hope he's right.

    lets hope this thread doesn't get hit and closed with a bunch of negative naysayers.

    I wish I knew programming. I have a few good ideas.

    WebOS has the best chance of survival with HP behind it, but the writer is a consultant for HP......unfortunately, we agree with him, but there may be a little bias.
