Almost sounds like you should by a palm if it's that important to you. I think most that have gone the way of Android (like myself...a previous BB, WinMo, Palm user) have done so because they actually like what it offers.

No offense but that makes no sense. ii
You say people want Android + Web OS. Android is an OS, NOT the hardware.
Oh I guess you meant a WebOS emulator then? Why would you need that when any software for the Pre is already on Android for the most part.
If you want nicer hardware running WebOS, just wait for the next WebOS device to come out. If you HAVE to have WebOS that is your only option.
I want the Android OS, I came from a Pre and it was great but Android offers a lot if you learn to use it. The key here is *IF* you learn to use it!!!
If you just got an Evo you simply need to give it more time man. Hell it has only been 5 days!!! Learn and read how to tweak it. I already have a bunch of stuff on my Evo that makes it very nice.
There are ways that WebOS worked that were GREAT, like dismissing individual notifications, but I can deal with it. Android offers sooooo much more...

Coming from Webos, ALL I miss is the great copy and paste, and being able to select running apps a tad more quickly. Android so far has proven to keep me better organized, and I have a feeling of confidence that whatever I want to do will simply "just work." Integration with Google (obviously) is amazing and I smile everytime my Evo asks me if I want to dial out using my sprint # or Voice. I didn't know what I was missing.

After the pretty wears off, you quickly realize its not all that. Palm's app store is like McDonalds condiment bar, very limited. I myself bought into the hype of webos hence the reason I fought the crowds on launch day to get the thing.
Currently I think Android is the most open, the most customizable, and shows the most promise for the future. Just my 0.02

I miss the notification management, direct FB integration of that app to the notifications but that's an app thing right? and I miss the app management, tossing them left/right and throwing them away when I'm done and not needing a 'task killer'
but the hardware of the EVO and the things it does so quickly are selling me thus far.... i just really MISS some things about webOS

I too had a Palm Pre Plus before I bought the Incredible. The function and design of WebOS is superior to Android. I don't think there is a lot of disagreement on that point. The HUGE thing that killed WebOS for me was the absence of spell check. No spell check? Seriously? That omission should win the award for software faux pas of the first decade of the 21st century.

this probably won't happen, at least officially (that is google incorporating webOS cards and things like that). Palm still owns those patents, which HP now owns. The guy from Palm who works at google will not fall back on his previous achievements because of a few reasons a) legality. b) it isn't original anymore. it could have been if it was done around the same time as Palm did it but it just wont sit well this much later. c) with the resources that he now has at his fingertips, he will probably create something that will be ground breaking and years ahead of the webOS features.
it's kind of hard to tell what will happen but i have a feeling Google will not let Android receive any updates that could hinder it. if they were able to incorporate the card system with the screens and widgets that android has, that would be interesting
