    Phoronix: HP Open-Sources webOS & Enyo App Framework

    Hewlett-Packard announced today what it will do with webOS, after announcing in August major changes would come to webOS and it would sell its PC business (later they changed their mind). HP hasn't changed their mind about webOS, but what they are going to do with it is quite good: Hewlett-Packard is open-sourcing webOS and its Enyo application framework...

    Best news I've heard all month. Look forward to seeing the Touchpad living on with community support.

          Hopefully they don't kill it by choosing GPL.

            they kill it if they don't chose AGPLv3+

            the BSD style licenses always go the same way open-source release then a company comes stole the source code and newer ever give anything back.

            BSD support an anti-social movement.

              With HP giving a reprieve to the TouchPad, maybe this will get people to consider the TouchPad as an alternative to the iPad...if HP plays its cards right as to pricing and the build quality. Opensourcing WebOS will ensure continuing support for the Touchpad in the event it gets killed off down the road.
