Dear Palm

Please release webOS in a manner that lets me put it on any device I own. Please open up the application specifications so that any application developed for webOS can be run on any OS that supports this specification.

If you do, I promise that I'll pay you double the cost of the Apple tablet for the first tablet that runs webOS and conforms to this specification.

You see, I want an open platform like the web, not a closed ecosystem like the app store. I want IDEs that run on any platform and operate on the cloud. I want all of my applications to blur the line between being "webapps" and being applet/mobile apps. And I want to develop these apps in the same languages that run in any browser.
