There's been recent discussions about running HTML5 "apps" in Sugar
and/or the OLPC OS, just like WebOS does. A bit earlier today on

(slightly edited for clarity)

[12:21:29] <cscott> cjb: hp's webos team has apparently been hired en
bloc by google
[12:21:45] <cscott> http://www.theverge.com/2012/5/24/3042441/hp-enyo-google
[12:22:11] <cscott> "what this means for the future of webos is unclear"
[12:30:53] <cscott> hp clarified -- it's not the *entire* webos team,
just the engineers "responsible for 99% of the code"
[12:45:04] <martin_xsa> ah, it's not any random part of webos, it's
the part I like :-)
[12:45:13] <martin_xsa> now I know the name - Enyo
[12:52:50] <cscott> yeah, enyo looks like it was actually getting
somewhere with its version 2.0
[12:53:08] <cscott> there are iphone and android apps in the app
stores using enyo already

If anyone is playing around looking for a runtime / sandbox
environment, Enyo and ChromeOS's shell are probably top of the list...
