HP Making webOS Open Source

from the had-it-in-the-palm-of-their-hand dept.

Several readers sent word of HP's announcement that the company will be contributing webOS to the open source community. According to HP's press release, they will continue to be active in webOS's development, and one of their goals will be to avoid fragmentation. ENYO, the application framework for webOS, will also go open source in the near future.


HP's brief FAQ:

It's interesting that Marc Andreesen (on the board) is getting a lot of mention with this, i wonder if he helped push for this, and possibly will help run/build the governance structure..

And they have a github repo open, currently empty of course, but with funny issues already opened :)

PS: Bay Area webOS meetup a week from today in SF!
