TheDark Posted July 8, 2006 at 11:01 PM Report Share #37164 Posted July 8, 2006 at 11:01 PM A Firefox PC operating system?Lost amid the hubbub of the Saturday afternoon appearance by Firefox's Blake Ross at Gnomedex was a very interesting comment to Ross from Brian Livingston of Windows Secrets. Here's what Livingston said: "What I would like to see as the roadmap is not adding more features to Firefox, because it's a good browser, but if you had a development cycle for a Firefox OS, and you had 10 percent of the computers in the world going out with Fire OS on it, then we would see some improvements in this corporation in Redmond. Because they don't improve and they don't innovate unless they have somebody taking apart their market share. You could do that. You have the developers and you have the innovation. You have the energy and the excitement. We have Ubuntu and we have Linux ... but you could really do something that looked like Windows, worked better than Windows. Microsoft installed spyware called Genuine Advantage to 100 million Windows users in April, May and June. They're just starting to fall back from that, but people would trust Firefox and Mozilla far more than they trust the Microsoft Corp. with the integrity of their computers." in msfn.org Desaparecido.
