Four Signs That WebOS Is on the Right Track

By Katherine Noyes, PCWorld

 

 

It was exciting news back in December when HP announced that it was planning to open-source webOS, but at least as exciting now is how quickly and decisively it's moving to make that happen.

Future of HP's WebOS: The FAQ

Not only did the company announce yesterday that it plans to have webOS fully open by September, but it also said it has made a number of key decisions regarding the Linux-based mobile platform, including the fact that it will use a mainline Linux kernel starting in March.

Some have said that webOS's days were numbered, but HP's latest moves suggest otherwise. In fact, I think these new decisions bode exceptionally well for the future of webOS. Here's why.

I have to read more about this. I am likely buying a new desktop PC this year and I would like to run Linux on it. I might keep Windows so I can use some of my old software again, assuming it will still run on a newer version of Windows. If not, I really don't have any use for Windows or Microsoft at all.

Hi Laura It seems users should take their own interests to heart. Hope for the best and expect the worst ;-)

Why is CEDET needed?

Emacs already is a great environment for writing software, but there are additional areas that need improvement. Many new ideas for integrated environments have been developed in newer products, such as Microsoft's Visual environment, JBuilder, or Eclipse. CEDET is a project which implements several advanced features developers have come to expect from an Editor.
