Mozilla Proposes Mobile OS Boot to Gecko

mozilla-boot-to-gecko_1312071835Earlier this week, Mozilla announced the Boot to Gecko (B2G) project which aims to create a full standalone operating system based on Linux.

The Boot to Gecko project is presently in preparation phase and not much code has been written so far. However, this may change quickly as Andreas Gal, a specialist at Mozilla Corporation, said that the project is in its infancy and several pieces of it are just captured in our heads today.  Boot to Gecko will offer a couple of interesting latest web APIs for revealing gadgets and OS abilities to content like Telephony, SMS, Camera, USB, Bluetooth, NFC and more.  The operating system will be complete, standalone for the open web.  It will be based on the lowest level elements of the Android platform like the gadget drivers and kernel.  If we recognize the recommendation properly, each device abilities will be revealed for both applications and web pages.

Mozilla are pronouncing the latest OS in a very early stage.  This is for the reason that they want all the developers and the open source community to contribute with the ideas and code from the start of the project.
Do you believe Mozilla will be successful with the latest OS? Could it fight with iOS, Android and Windows Phone?

    I have a nextel motorola i9 that is running on boost mobile. Now the nextel OS on this phone is very cryptic compared to the boost mobile OS on the same phone. I was wondering if there was a way that the nextel OS could be flashed and boost installed.
