    There is something magical about Firefox OS | Rawkes

    Oops.. I was coming here to correct you that its called the Mozilla OS not the FF OS .. :p

    ..... Interesting ..

    So this is like Chrome OS redux .. I think the Mobile OS market is pretty saturated already .. where will this fit ?

    I generally don't understand the idea of browser OS, but let's see how this works out.

    The prototypes are based on ARM architecture..


    For low end netbooks you and try the Androidx86 project. I've tested ICS on a netbook. Works pretty well.

    IMHO until we get reliable wireless dongles and free WiFi in major Cafes/Public areas, the whole notion of a netbook is fail in INDIA.

    What .. just the low price is justification enough for its success in India.
