For years, I've been saying that a Firefox OS is a good thing (and hey there is no shortage of Linux appliances that are pretty much that).
Now at long last, Mozilla has seen the same light and is rebranding the effort once known as Boot to Gecko (B2G) as Firefox OS.
Yes, it does sound familiar for other reasons...doesn't it?
Google also has an operating system named after a browser with Chrome OS. Both Chrome OS and Firefox OS are based on and leverage Linux at the core.
