For some end-of-year amusement: Betanews advises Microsoft to buy Palm
as a way of getting back into the smartphone market. "Microsoft should offer an open-source mobile operating system -- and WebOS would be it.

Microsoft has too much valuable intellectual property tied into Windows Mobile for an open-source effort. But WebOS would be an easy open-source project.
