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."

Well when you consider the size of the potential market relative to the development costs there is probably room for a profitable niche OS offering.

Bada does pretty well in certain markets for example and is just part of Samsungs offerings obviously. I could see a niche for some exotic OS on some interesting platform, but then again I also bought a Nokia N900 ;)
