Mozilla & Gecko clones And even more news from Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Mozilla has announced a partnership with Telefonica and Qualcomm, which will bring Mozilla's Boot to Gecko HTML5-based mobile interface to devices later his year. This is a huge boon for the fully open source environment.

I do believe the web will be THE platform for mobile. It will probably be also the platform for consumer laptops and tablets. The desktop will be "relegated" to professional use.

So "relegated" to ~work, a place to do work, a "workplace" - except this word has an established meaning. Maybe we could call them... workstations?

And the devices using web... hm... by precedence of most basic software meant to remotely connect to servers - terminals?

Yup, you've heard it first here.
