Gram will continue to deliver the HTML5-based Enyo code to the open source community, but beyond that not much is know about Gram’s aims and goals. Gram will operate from within its current space at HP’s campus. Based on the contents of an internal memo that Gram confirmed was legitimate, Gram considers itself to be a new company operating in stealth mode.
