As you likely know by now, HP has suspended further development
of their TouchPad tablet efforts. The reasons why are debatable at
best, yet the end result remains the same.
This tablet is going to be reliant on the community for further
support as HP is no longer offering their resources. Some people on
the Web today believe that the community will indeed fill the void
HP has left; perhaps as a hobbyist's toy.
Yet the biggest question remains: Will we see continued support
for the existing OS option used on the HP TouchPad, or instead will
Linux distributions like Ubuntu fill the gap?
