The death of WebOS

One of the big tech stories of the week is that HP has suddenly killed off it's WebOS tablet after lackluster sales.

The sudden death of a OS is not such a common thing, especially in consumer devices (obsolescence is another matter) which left me wondering what happens to those WebOS users if (when?) security vulnerabilities are found in their shiny new tablets?

Admittedly it's a tiny minority of the tablet market and the internet user base as a whole, but most of the time consumers have had a good few years (14 years in the case of Windows XP!) to use their PC/Tablet/phone/etc before support is yanked - not a matter of weeks or days - or in the case of the bargain hunters, no support from the get-go.

It's an unusual situation. Maybe they just all install Android....
