Hi everyone, we're a noprofit EU foundation devoted to promote the open source philosophy and spread its softwares.
The open sourcing of WebOS is certainly a good approach, but - in our opinion - if LG wanna seriously push its userbase/community the best move is to officially join open source softwares that are already widely adopted.
We're talking about Kodi, THE award-winning free and open source cross-platform software media player and entertainment hub for digital media !
So our suggestion for LG devs is to initially port a Kodi-specific distro - such as LibreElec - to "undertand" how implement the integration and, of course, to attract more indipendent devs.
