    Hope this isn't a dumb question.

    But since WebOS is Linux based, if the Skype for Linux source code is obtained, could it be ported for WebOS easily?

    Recently (November) Skype announced that they are working on an open-source front end for Skype. It is speculated that the protocol guts will be interfaced through an API in a binary blob. But, once this is available, it may be possible to write a WebOS native client using the code and information from the open source version.

    Unfortunately they're only opening the UI... speculation was that they'd release something along the lines of a binary only "libskype" package, and an API that developers could use to create their own front-ends. Unofficial WebOS versions of skype might be possible if they release ARM builds of that library... but it's unclear if they will... or even can do that yet.
