Leo was hired to move HP from basically a hardware company to more of a software company. You are witnessing it right now with WebOS. HP is heavily investing in WebOS as it mobile platform. They hired 70 new positions for Palm and moved 200 more from other divisions at HP to work on WebOS. And on top of this Jon Rubinstein was installed on Amazon's BOD. This leads me to believe that the next Kindle will run WebOS. That is the future of HP...in software. I believe they will start licensing out WebOS and acquiring more companies that is sw platform-oriented. Also I see them signing partnership agreements with the likes of SAP and Microsoft. Leo is perfect for this since he came from SAP and has a much better understanding of what to do than Hurd would have.
