Mozilla & Gecko clones "Mozilla today announced Boot to Gecko , a very ambitious project that aims to create a 'complete, standalone operating system for the open web'. This project's goal is to develop what seems like a ChromeOS-like operating system where all the apps are based on HTML5."

... when there is iOS, Android, Phone 7, webOS, Blackberry QNX + plus all the legacy mobile OS's.

Hum, let me think - - with so much choice in the market are any manufacturers really go to put this on a phone? Not really a good time to launch a new mobile OS is it?

...and none are open source.

I get your point about entering a crowded market but everyone benefits from competition and choice. If this could prove to be a drop in replacement for android (with android app compatibility) then I think there would be a market for it. It would be mostly a geek thing but a market none the less.
