Original OSNews Interviews A Hong Kong-based startup run by former Mozilla President Li Gong aims to take on Android with its new Web-based operating system, H5OS. Similar to the Firefox operating system from Mozilla, H50S is based on HTML5, a website development language that tries to give Web apps the same capabilities as so-called native applications that are downloaded to a device like the iPhone. More on H5OS here.

No this is terrible. Its not firefox os, its a fork of firefox os. He also explicitly talked about "Owning the Operating system". That does not sound good. If you are writing to open standards, then apps written for your platform will work any where those open standards are implemented and you have no lock-in.
