Jon Rubinstein Compares HP’s WebOS to Mac OS X

Jon Rubinstein Compares HP’s WebOS to Mac OS X, article.
In a letter to employees, Jon Rubinstein, senior vice president and general manager of HP’s Palm Global Business Unit, told employees not to worry about the negative reviews that the company’s new TouchPad media tablet received, and he likened the OS running the device, webOS, to Apple’s own Mac OS X in terms of both its potential and early reception.

I like this. Thinking in years and decades is essential for success. Too many businesses think mostly in months, or even less.

I also hope earnestly that WebOS become successful. I like iOS a lot, and Android is not bad, but it's pretty boring. Some new approaches and perspectives would be very welcome in tablet-land.
