IDC analyst likes where HP's webOS roadmap is going.

WorldWide Tech & Science. Francisco De Jesús.
One of the reasons why IDC analyst Al Hilwa  likes webOS is the elegance of the user interface and a more participatory governance model that should attract some players in the embedded development space. But he is making a more deep analysis of why he thinks the webos roadmap is good designed, as you can read as follows:


"Great to see this outlined in some level of detail. I am not surprised that it will take till September to open this code.

There is normally a significant amount of scrutiny and code grooming to ensure that any sizeable chunk of code would stand scrutiny form an IP perspective. This is standard operating procedure.

 I think putting WebOS in the Apache 2.0 license is a bold move likely to maximize chances of adoption by OEMs because Apache 2.0 is both familiar and permissive.

The Enyo JavaScript framework is likely to have a life of its own separate from WebOS because of the difficulty of building good JavaScript frameworks with support for sensors and device hardware.

 All in all this is a good first step to what might shape up to be an important contribution to the community with many valuable components, but we will have to wait and see if there are any actual takers.

Feature maturity compared to Android may be a challenge for WebOS, but the elegance of the user interface and a more participatory governance model should attract some players in the embedded development space."
