"After hearing that some developers aren't all that interested
in creating apps for the Palm Pre and webOS, others are offering
the opposite opinion. NetworkWorld interviewed a bunch of different
developers, who all appear to be pretty bullish on the new mobile
operating system from Palm.
"webOS is Linux-based and has a number of Palm innovations and
additions. The main ingredient, apparently, is the mixture of the
Webkit engine to control some of the user interface, including HTML
and Java support. NetworkWorld writes:
""The potential power of webOS lies in three capabilities that
Palm has brought together into a coherent whole. First, mobile
Style Sheets, which are technologies that an army of Web developers
has been using for years.""
