Submission + - HP to put WebOS on PCs in 2012

Stenchwarrior writes: Hewlett-Packard’s chief executive officer Leo Apotheker announced that WebOS will be on every PC that HP ships in 2012. A move to attract more developers and push the operating system from mobile devices onto desktops. Apotheker made the announcement during a presentation to HP’s staff in India, according to a report by Bloomberg.

It’s not likely that WebOS will supplant existing operating systems on PCs, but rather would run on top of Windows to be able to launch WebOS apps. HP had previously announced its plans to push WebOS on to PC’s last month, but, at the time, the company didn’t reveal the scope of its commitment to the operating system. We now know that HP means each and every PC it sells starting in 2012 will have WebOS installed.
