webOS goes Open-Source!

So here is HP's solution about one of the biggest flops in the history: On Friday, the company said that they are giving away the webOS software, which has been used for their Touch-Pad and Pre series.

With the power of the open-source community, HP believes, webOS has "the opportunity to significantly improve applications and web services for the next generation of devices".
withdrawn only a few days after launch: The TouchPad
They also declared that they will continue to be an "active participant and investor in the project".

The HP Pre
Well, our opinion is that this does not have to mean anything since we know how fast projects had been abandoned these days (e.g Meego and Nokia).
Only the future (and the community!) will tell if webOS is ever going to get the attention it deserves...
