In a vacuum, the webOS features we love are superior to those of iOS and Android. Those developers, though, concentrated on bigger picture issues such as API's, battery life and the holistic ecosystem that makes their platforms flourish. In time, the best features of webOS will make their way into the other OS's. Case in point: iOS and Android now have decent notification systems, which WebOS pioneered.
I love WebOS as much as anyone, even on my sh*tty Pixi phone, but it will take a miracle for any resurrection to come out of the open source movement. Better to take the best parts of webOS (synergy/contact management and the SDK) and slipstream them into an OS that manufacturers support.
