HP Announces Timetable for Releasing webOS as Open Source
Last month, HP revealed the ultimate fate of webOS, which, instead of ending up locked-away tight in the company’s IP vault, would see itself released for the first time as an open source project. Ultimately, that will give dedicated webOS fans that opportunity to continue evolving the operating system, as well as create opportunities for interested companies to manufacture new products based on the platform. Making sure that all its in-house webOS resources are ready to be released to the public is a serious undertaking for HP to bear, and it’s going to take some time. Today, the company announced the schedule for the ongoing release of webOS resources over the next several months.
