Mozilla's own OS

So we have the Mac OSX, Windows, Google with ChromeOS, now Mozilla want to dabble in it.

Good for them I say, before Chrome, Firefox was the way forward, there isn't much to write about, it's all just a simple plan for now, nothing is "concrete".

Mozilla have named the project "Boot to Gecko". Mozilla are possibly looking at building on a Linux base rather than re-invent the wheel so to speak.

Sources say they may prototype their OS for PC's but they are mainly focusing on handheld devices such as phones/tablets/pads and will be released real time in open source.

No doubt this project will take quite a while to even see the light of day but from what I've read, if anything ever become of this project, I would be willing to give it a try, I was a Mozilla user for many years and still am, they made an awesome product in Firefox and Thunderbird, so this has the potential to be something even better.

Keep up with the discussions and planning here with these two links: http://goo.gl/bseDK & http://goo.gl/pHQH9
