exoPlatform is another webOS. I blogged just yesterday about wanting to install a webOS on my old laptop that is independent of having a OS. A true webOS and not just a webtop. It will becoming soon, but this one looks nice for a webtop that is currently being described in 2006 as webOS.
webOS will become a true OS in 2007. For now give the company exoPlatform a look. I like the way the bottom works just like MacOS.
I believe the player (startup) that takes over in all of the webOS dollars will be the one that reads this blog. Just kidding! You don’t have to read the Technically Speaking blog, but what I mean is, the one that rules in 2007 will be the one that makes webOS a true OS.
- a nice small footprint bootable OS such as a custom Linux
- then booting right into the webOS that is already there
Simple right? Well it’s probably a bit more complex, but not really. The technology is all there, and the first company that can provide this, I will load it up on my old laptop to check it out. I believe the first company that does this, will really grab most of the undecided “whether to go Mac or PC” market that is currently out there. That in itself is a gigantic market of people. Another market that will be tapped is the old PC and old Laptop market. That market alone should be big enough to entice some of these companies to get a move on for 2007.
Technically Speaking, it’s a wide open market out there. webOS is starting to come into it’s own, and could be OWNing their piece of the OS market in 2007; or at the very least be in a better position next year at this same time.

Have you heard about the news about WebOS? More specifically GoogleOS? I am sure you may have read it, write? This is a nice speculation article that was written on the possibility of Linux(s) Torvalds working at Google to help with Google OS. I discussed the webOS thing awhile back, and I think that 2007 will be a year that more of the WebOS that are currently out there will begin to establish a foothold.
I started talking about WebOS about a month or so ago. The last time I mentioned it was right here, and the blog post was talking about some company called eyeOS. The above article mentions YouOS, which is the most “Linux like” webOS.
GoogleOS is inevitable to appear on the market in 2007. I mean, seriously, if you believe otherwise then the article about Linus joining Google is all TRUTH! Technically Speaking, I for one believe that 2007 is the right time and the right place in history for WebOS to really take off and get a foothold on small portable devices as well as our main machines. It will also lengthen and extend the lifespan of some older gear.
Personally, I have an old laptop that is currently gathering dust in an upstairs closet that could be easily serviced to be a WebOS testing platform. Are there any WebOS entrepreneur’s ready for Rex Dixon to give their OS a spin? Let me know. I think the number of “old laptops” that could be made into WebOS machines or more like useable computers or laptops again would probably astound people.

eyeOS, is a company that TechCrunch is reporting on this afternoon. It appears that the buzz word for 2007 will be – WebOS, GoogleOS, anyOS that runs on your desktop freely.
Technically Speaking, I am now wondering how many companies will be formed, VC funded, and survive through 2007 doing WebOS? We all know what happens when Google releases GoogleOS right? Everyone will be swallowed alive in one big gulp. Better get to 7-11 now to pick one of those up!

Laszlo, is going to do it. GoogleOS might not be out next week, but Laszlo isn’t going to wait for Google. Technically Speaking, that’s innovation and progress. There are more companies like Laszlo out there.
