Like Gizmo For You's Flow smartphone announced in 2009, the OSRC control system runs Linux on the Gumstix Overo Earth single-board computer (SBC), which in turn is based on the Texas Instruments (TI) Cortex-A8 OMAP3503 processor. The OSRC (below) also supports the newer, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth enabled Overo Air module, which has a similarly tiny footprint of 0.7 x 2.3 x 0.2 inches (17 x 58 x 4.2mm).

While the Firefox source code from the Mozilla project is free software, they distribute and recommend non-free software as plug-ins and addons. Also their trademark license restricts distribution in several ways incompatible with freedom 0. https://www.gnu.org/software/gnuzilla/ Read more
