Hewlett Packard announced today that they plan to release WebOS as open source in the near future with HP keeping an active role in overseeing development.


The company will now "contribute webOS to open source license" -- another way of saying that the code will be available under open source license. HP's role will be an active one as it continues to contribute development, engineering and support resources.

Next steps include engaging with the open-source community to define the WebOS open source charter and develop a plan for how that will be governed. It will likely run under an Apache-style license.


Having picked up a 32gb Touchpad during the firesale this past summer, I can say that WebOS is a good solid platform and probably the closest thing I have seen to a counterpart to Maemo5.

Now if only Nokia would release Maemo5 as open source Smile
