This is due next year and will be based on html5. It will supposedly be very lightweight so may work well on a Blade. I wonder if any developers will be around to port to the Blade?

FOS (OMG! That sounds awful in Hungarian! :D) has the same Linux core under the hood as Android, so the Blade should be fully compatible with it.

It's even worse in English, the abbreviation FOS stands for "Full Of S-h-i-t" in Internet English. :D

I sincerely doubt they'll be naming it that. :D

Well, in Hungarian it stands for 'urine', they are very close (in meaning. :) )

You are mistaken, fos means literally sh1t in hungarian. Anyways this is not the place... Firefox OS would be quite promising. But I think it's a year or two late.

Oh, all of these made me laugh, but it's more formally known as boot to gecko (b2g)

No, that's 'szar'... Fos comes from the french/spanish (can't remember, but both languages has the word) fossé, which means 'ditch', because those soldiers left their output in the ditch, they told the Hungarians where they go, but some of they thought it's a verb and begin to use it for that activity. (ie. fosni)

At least that's what my teacher said.

Try a thing you haven’t done three times. Once, to get over the fear of doing it. Twice, to learn how to do it. And a third time, to figure out whether you like it or not.

So am I :)

Anyway, in my whole life both me and the people around me used the word fos as s***.
Urine is pisi, húgy, vizelet, etc....

This is how a thread about a mobile operating system turns into a language-specific one. ;) Guys, if you don't speak Hungarian, learn it. It's fun :)

Well, my teacher is a bit philosophic and a real 'all-rounder', so I'm going to just trust him after all. I personally know no other person I can talk about quantum physics yet.

I may accept that the original meaning was in fact, what you said above.

By the way, being a web-programming enthusiast, I see much in a platform based on HTML and JS, but I don't think it can be a real competition to native code and hardware-accelerated java in terms of raw performance. That means, in order to achieve the same user experience, one needs stronger hardware (or much (MUCH) better optimized code) on the Firefox OS phone. Why? Because JS is an interpreted language, which has interpreters that are highly optimized, it still runs an abstraction level higher that Java/compiled C, C++.
We'll see shortly if my thoughts here are right.

Have you ever seen the JS based Linux virtual machine? Surprisingly it runs well on blade with Opera Mobile... Except for keyboard. Now, if the browser is the GUI instead of being an app, it has waaay more memory and can be optimized to a level that can't be achieved with a browser app... I think this thing is promising...

Please stop making this into a language topic :/
Anyway, I'm not really sure why anybody would actually want firefox os (b2g), as there will probably be hardly any apps. If you want something that has the looks, just use miui.
Can anybody tell me why you would want this?

Edit: I know why you want it now and I probably underestimated the amount of apps (only time will tell)

Because it is new and shiny and has a nice smell.
The reason is that a LOT of people can write programs for it as it is purely based on web technologies. HTML and Javascript are easy enough, there are tons of tutorials, articles to them, but Java can scare the s*** out of people who can't program yet.

"there will hardly be any apps" is what the IOS crowd said about Android when it was being developed.

If you build it (the OS) they (the app devs) will come.

Some competition isn't a bad thing either, competition breeds innovation.

Personally i loathe Java but i loathe Javascript even more, if there ever is an app for b2g written in Javascript i'd never use it on general principle.

I'd like a new platform that only accepts binaries. :D
