According to PreCentral HP's CEO Meg Whitman has apparently called for a general meeting of all the senior-staff in the company today to come to a final decision concerning the OS.

This will be the second decisive decision made by the companies CEO Meg Whitman after she made the bold move of regaining control of HP's PC division following speculation as to whether the company would permanently move into software.
